There are moments in life that are so perfect and magical that one can only sit back and just bask in its glory. That moment came for Ardsley High School basketball player Julian McGarvey who intercepted a pass with only 2.4 seconds left to play and won the championship for his school in an incredible 70 foot throw.
For all of us, there are self-defining moments but too few actually take the shot. They never know if that was the moment that would change their lives or the lives of others. Sure, this was just a basketball game but Julian McGarvey elevated his entire high school with a once in a lifetime shot.
Well-down Julian. The tough part will be trying to top this moment in your remaining 70-90 years. However, any kid who can throw this buzzer beater must have some more surprises to come for all of us. In the very least, he shows that anything is possible with a touch of luck, a lot of skill, and pure audacity.
