In an age in which almost everything is on video, Ranney junior Scottie Lewis's dunking ability is not a secret. Even in empty practice gyms with his high school or AAU teammates, his dunks earn, likes, favorites and retweets across social media.

So the only difference between Lewis dunking in the gym in front of his friends and participating in the City of Palms Classic Slam Dunk Contest on Wednesday was the stage.

Just as he did in back-to-back Shore Sports Network I'm Possible Dunk Contests in Toms River, Lewis put on a show Tuesday for a paying crowd and won the prestigious competition against some of the country's top players and athletes at Florida Southwestern State College.

The difference between Lewis's two performances in Toms River and his display on Wednesday was his latest victory included props - or, more specifically, people. Props were not permitted in the SSN contests, but were on Wednesday and Lewis took advantage by twice leaping over multiple, stationary human beings.

Lewis and teammate Bryan Antoine have both turned in eye-opening plays and performances while at the City of the Palms Classic. Ranney lost its opener at the powerhouse tournament to McEachern of Georgia - a top-10 team in the country - but followed the loss up with a win over Canterbury High School of Florida. In that game, Antoine scored 30 points on 14-for-20 shooting to go with five rebounds and eight steals. Lewis, meanwhile, posted 10 points, six rebounds and five assists in the loss to McEachern, which also included an acrobatic spin move into a 180-degree, two-handed dunk.

Junior teammate Alex Klatsky also got a chance to showcase his skills in the three-point shootout, which was won by West Virginia University commit Jordan McCabe.

Ranney will continue its pursuit of a consolation bracket championship Friday at 9 a.m. against Orlando Christian Prep.
