Carter Cramsey, of Quincy, was a big winner at the Quincy Notre Dame High School boys basketball game Saturday, Dec. 1. Now he'll get to celebrate with pizza.

Carter, an eighth-grader at St. Peter School, made a layup, free throw, three-point shot and then the big basket — a half-court shot — to win a $100 gift certificate from Papa John's Pizza in Quincy. Participants get 30 seconds to make the three shots. They win one large pizza for a free throw, and two more for a three-pointer.

QND holds the halftime shootout at every home game.

The Herald-Whig's David Adam captured this video of the feat from the press box.
