OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -- It was the shot heard around the school last week when Sherwood Cass R-VIII quarterback Tucker Wolfe nailed a basket with a football.

“I was very surprised,” said Wolfe, a junior.

And so was his principal, Bryan Himes.

“We’ve probably shot it 500 times, and I’ve only seen maybe three or four go in,” Himes said.

Himes placed a friendly wager with Wolfe that included donuts for everyone if he shot a football into a basketball hoop and swooshed it.

“It’s something fun to do to get the kids excited. Make it a full court shot and you’ll get donuts for the whole school and it’s never happened until this year,” Himes said.

Himes posted a tweet with the incredible shot and within minutes, LaMar Donuts answered the call.

The company responded to Himes on Twitter saying, “We’ll make it happen. You’re lucky you didn’t promise the kid a Lamborghini!”

Not only did LaMar’s offer to make the donuts, they’re donating them as well.
