We have all heard stories about Michael Jordan first dunking in a Junior Varsity game at 5’8″ or Vince Carter dunking when he was 15 but these guys grew up to be arguably the two best game dunkers of all-time. Now it’s becoming more common to hear about young freaks of nature like 14 year old Seventh Woods or 6’3″ 7th grader William Dillard throwing down a windmill in a game.
If that wasn’t enough to make you cry thinking back to how you just wanted to touch the bottom of the net in middle school, here’s a MIDDLE SCHOOL DUNK CONTEST that took place at the 1st annual Dunk Dog All-American Game in Greensbora, North Carolina featuring the best dunkers of the Class of 2017! These young participants of the contest and game were chosen from Chris Paul’s Rising Stars National Camp and by the time the majority of these kids graduate high school Kobe will be a couple of years into retirement, LeBron’s might be getting be getting the fingers on his left hand fitted for rings and Ben Affleck will probably be working on his 2nd Batman film.
Congrats to MJ Walker for winning the contest. Wait, a middle school kid named MJ won a dunk contest in North Carolina…
Other participants included Victor Enoh, Ira Lee, Wendell Carter, Terrell Coleman, Cody Riley, Jermaine Samuels, and Trevon Duval
