Boys Basketball – 2017 I’m Possible Training Slam Dunk Vote
The Shore Sports Network and I'm Possible Training Dunk Contest is back after a successful first run last year. This year, the field of nominees is just as deep as it was last year, if not a bit deeper.
Defending champion Scottie Lewis from Ranney will be an automatic entry after winning the contest last year and will defend his championship against five other dunkers. The new wrinkle this season is that teams can have more than one representative among the nominees, and there is one other school along with Ranney that could have two players on the list of dunkers.
Mater Dei Prep might have been one of those schools, but senior Elijah Barnes is currently recovering from a forearm injury he suffered on March 1. The Princeton-bound swingman would have been among the favorites had he been healthy.
Despite that buzzkill, there is still plenty of bounce in the field and five of the following 14 players will make the trip to Pine Belt Arena in Toms River on March 23 to show off their dunking skills and try to dethrone the champ.
Look over the list of nominees, watch some of their highlights and vote for the five you want to see dunk for the title on March 23 in Toms River. Voting ends on Sunday at 5 p.m. and you can vote every three hours.
If you have more highlights that you want the voters to see, post them on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #SSNDunk.
For those who don't believe it....Here is Tommy Oakes' ridiculous off-the-backboard pass to Tyler Pierson for the vicious slam!! #RollDawgs pic.twitter.com/Zna9zW0Zpe — The RFH Dawgpound (@TheRFHDawgpound) February 8, 2017
