Blake Harper, First Grade Student, Makes Free Throw To Win Classmates A Day Off From School (VIDEO)

First Grader Wins Deal With School After Sinking Shot

One straight-shooting first grader quickly became the big man on campus when he sank a free throw to earn his classmates a day off from school the Monday after Super Bowl XLVII.

According to description accompanying the video on YouTube, the proposition at Mater Dei School in Bethesda, Md. was simple: make the foul shot and spend Super Bowl Monday out of the classroom. After a few older students missed their 3-point attempts, Blake Harper was given the opportunity to earn a day off for the entire school from the free throw line.

Harper stayed poised under pressure and sank the shot to the delight of his classmates, who all rushed the youngster immediately after securing the three-day weekend.

Meanwhile, the Monday after the Super Bowl has not been declared a national holiday.
