LAS VEGAS, Nev. — A high school athlete soared farther and higher than everyone else at a recent slam dunk competition, when he took off from in front of the free throw line.

Shelby McEwen brought the house down with his jam, which was more than fitting, since he pulled it off at the Michael Jordan Brand First to Fly Dunk Contest.

The high school senior won the event.
