New Fairfield Basketball Player Shot Makes Sports Center
There comes a time when you have to do what you have to do, and sometimes that includes making an unbelievable full court shot at the buzzer.
That's exactly what Brett Tenaglia from New Fairfield High School did Friday night during a game against the Bunnell Bull Dogs to force their game into overtime.
New Fairfield trailed Bunnell by 3 with seconds to go when Bunnell missed a foul shot, Brett was in the right place at the right time, got the rebound and threw up a full court hail Mary. The shot went in, (nothing but net), and the crowd and his teammates went wild.
Unfortunately the Rebels lost the game in double overtime, but the shot and video went viral and was actually featured on ESPN's Sports Center.
You can catch the now famous Brett Tenaglia and the rest of the Rebels basketball team when they take on the Brookfield Bobcat's Tuesday night at the Brookfield High School gym, game time is 7 pm.
