6’1 quarterback Johnny Manziel might have more hops than some 6’1 NBA players.
Johnny Football posted this instagram video this morning showing himself putting on a dunk exhibition that featured a 360 dunk that I didn’t expect him to make.
Watching him dunk reminded me of the early 90’s Footlocker dunk contests with players like Deion Sanders, Ken Griffey Jr and Chris Carter. My favorite match-up was from 93 when 5’8 Barry Sanders (my favorite running back of all-time) faced off against 5’11 Kenny Loften. The dunks aren’t anything that special now but keep in mind these guys are football players, under 6 foot and were just as impressive (or not) as Harold Miner’s competition that year in the NBA dunk contest.
