The Harlem Globetrotters were so inspired to hear the story of how West Point/Beemer High School student, James Meiergerd made a backward, half-court shot a few weeks ago during halftime of a game, that they came to visit the small town.
Over 800 students attended a pep rally at WestPoint/Beemer High School that featured Globetrotter Orlando Melendez. Melendez wanted to personally invite Meiergerd to be an honorary member of the Globetrotters when they appear in Omaha coming up in April.
Melendez asked Meiergerd to repeat the shot from January 5th. After a few attempts, James repeated the magical shot and sunk it.
Watch what happened below.
