Jackson Logsdon was in a half time contest at the U of L Women’s Basketball game in Louisville. Jackson made a layup, then a free throw, 3-pointer and nailed the half court shot, winning the $38,000 prize.
But, Jackson won’t ever see the money. Turns out there’s a small clause in the contest rules that says a contestant can’t have played Basketball in the past 6 years and of course Jackson played in highschool…
This guy really deserves that money. Not only did he nail a half court shot but he was such a good sport about the whole ‘technicality’ and he would have used the money to pay off his student loans. No shot there was a more deserving contestant at that game.
“It would have went a long way to paying off student loans and anything in that manner. It was still an awesome experience and something I’ll never forget. Very bittersweet though.”
