A college student at Texas A&M International pulled off a remarkable quadruplet of basketball shots in a row and won himself $25,000 in the process. TAMIU Athletics shared a video of Kyle Kieshnick making a layup, a free throw, a three-pointer and then a half-court shot — in succession — to claim the prize.

That’s pretty sweet. Even in your own backyard, that kind of progression is brutally tough to convert. But with the pressure of $25,000 weighing on your shoulders like that, what Kieshnick did is nothing short of remarkable.
