LINDALE, Texas (KETK) – Right now, this is big time candidate for “Play of the season.”
How about it folks, in double overtime, in a game to decide the District 14-4A championship, Canton senior guard Chris Hobbs hits maybe, arguably, the shot of his life.
With the Van Vandals at the free throw line leading 56-54 with seconds remaining, Hobbs grabbed the rebound off the missed charity, turned took two dribbles and launched the ball from beyond half court.
Even though he was somewhat guarderd, it went right through the hoop and the net perfectly like a Hail Mary prayer answered.
Hobbs’ miracle shot gave the Eagles a 57-56 triumph over rival Van and the top seed out of their district in the Class 4A boys playoffs that begin next week.
The Eagles will open against Quinlan Ford in the Bi-District round.
