How To Become The Coolest Kid In Your Town: Do This


The kid taking center stage in the video you’re about to see according to SportsCenter’s Twitter feed, is Matt Demember. The action takes place at a church league in Maryland. Matt had the ball in his hands, and apparently not much time to do anything with it. So he tried something… unique. And the result landed him the starring role in the latest installment in SportsGrid’s occasionally-recurring series, “How To Become The Coolest Kid In Your School/Town“:

Even that kid on the other team had to congratulate him. Also, what do you say if you’re the coach at, say, the next practice/game? Do you have to go the buzzkill route and be like, “I know it was fun when Matt hit that shot, but you can’t count on that happening all the time”? You probably do, which is unfortunate, since the behind-the-back three is probably all you can think about either. Also, Demember’s going to be so cool after this shot that he may actually get his own cheering section at future games. And if he does, we suggest this name: The Dememberists. Cheering Matt on to his rivals since 2013!

    That’s really awesome.

    Is the opposing coach wiping tears at the end? Probably really happy and proud of the kid. I imagine church league is purely for fun and to learn to some life lessons so to have a really cool feel-good moment like that definitely warms my heart and I’m glad it’s on video!

    our DRCC teams have a whole cheer section of about 20 people. Matt Demembers nickname is “Bird Man”
