A blog reader (and parent) shared a video with me that I just had to get out on the blog. We are early into the 2019-2020 basketball season here in Howard County but we may already have the play / shot of the year.

In a game where Centennial HS played Marriotts Ridge HS (on December 6th)…CHS player Joey Sedlacko makes a steal, dribbles behind his back and then launches a shot from behind his own free throw line (more that 3 quarters down court from the basket) and sinks it to end the 3rd quarter. Here is that video:

Marriotts Ridge ended up winning the game 60 to 55 but what a great shot by Joey Sedlacko.

Here is what Joey tweeted out that evening:



So now I am thinking that the blog needs a top play / shot award for this basketball season. If you have other incredible plays or shots from the 2019-2020 season (boys and girls) be sure to give me a heads up (#HoCoTopPlays). I will share some and come up with some type of top play of the season contest. That might be fun.

Great shot Joey Sedlacko and good luck to all of the players, teams and coaches here in Howard County this season.
