Here’s another contender for the title of the best dunk of the year, this time from the skilled hands of Ohio high schooler Devon Andrews.

Andrews, a 6-foot-5 senior at Lorain High School, had been playing Tuesday in a game against North Ridgeville High School when he scored the jaw-dropping dunk. As this video shows, Andrews threw an inbound pass off a defender’s back before catching the ball and dunking it.

According to The Chronicle-Telegram, Andrews, who will play for Kent State next year, scored a career-high 39 points on Tuesday. Lorain, which is undefeated this season with a 20-0 record, beat North Ridgeville 95-55.

Lorain basketball coach John Rositano told The Morning Journal this week that Andrews, who has been averaging 21.2 points per game, is a “well-grounded” and “unselfish” player. “He cares a whole lot about the team,” the coach said of the young man.
