AMERICA’S MOST ROCKIN’ SHOT WINNER IS AMATEUR BASKETBALL BANK ARTIST
Nationwide Search for Shamrock Farms Rockin Refuel Most Rockin’ Shot Goes To Louisville’s Michael Bush
PHOENIX (September 15, 2010) – The votes are in, and after 148 amateur basketball players submitted their best Rockin’ Shots, the winner of the national Rockin’ Refuel Most Rockin’ Shot Contest goes to Michael Bush, a Louisville 19-year old amateur with the skills to go around the back, off the roof, over the house and end with a swish (www.rockinrefuel.com).
Since March 2010, Shamrock Farms and ESPN’s basketball analyst Jay Bilas have tracked hundreds of entries to the nationwide trick shot contest as well as promoted the benefits of Rockin’ Refuel protein fortified chocolate milk. Along the way, Americans cast their votes through video views and the top five finalists were named:
• Michael Bush – www.rockinrefuel.com/video_gallery.php?VID=210
• Kenny Dobbs – www.rockinrefuel.com/video_gallery.php?VID=116
• Darwin Guyton – www.rockinrefuel.com/video_gallery.php?VID=153
• Paul Heiniger – www.rockinrefuel.com/video_gallery.php?VID=221
• Zachary Purdy – www.rockinrefuel.com/video_gallery.php?VID=212
After much debate and study of creativity and skill, Bilas and Rockin Refuel are crowning Michael Bush from Louisville as the champion. For his grand prize, Bush and a guest will travel to New York City to attend a leading college basketball pre-season tournament.
“You can give me all day, no all week, and I wouldn’t be able to make the shot Michael made,” said Bilas who has provided commentary to his favorite videos throughout the contest on RockinRefuel.com . “We had some great entries and it was a tough call to pick just one.”
To help find America’s Most Rockin’ Shot, Shamrock Farms teamed up with the Hoop It Up tour – the nation’s largest grassroots 3-on-3 tournament – to host shot competitions in 11 cities. Along the way they collected videos and made a donation for each event to Coaches vs. Cancer – a joint effort by the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches that empowers basketball coaches, their teams, and communities to help win the fight against cancer. Other contest entries, like Bush’s, were submitted directly to the contest website.
