SAN ANTONIO - There are only 16 students in the senior class at Legacy Christian High School, all eight of the boys are on the basketball team, including one who is making a name for himself in the air.

Joseph Obasi's dunks have been featured all over the internet. ESPN, Overtime and World Star just some of the publications that have showcased his high-flying ability.

"It was actually on the last day of seventh grade, that I got my first dunk in," Obasi said.

His first viral dunk came in the eighth grade when he did a between the legs dunk.

"No, I've never been able to coach a young athlete that's like him, so it's pretty impressive when he first did it in practice it's kind of one of those, coach has to keep his composure or something but it was pretty impressive," Legacy Christian head coach Justin Lassiter added.

Perhaps his most famous dunk came in his school uniform, a polo shirt and dress slacks.

The Legacy Christian Rams have made two straight trips to the TAPPS 1A state championship game finishing runners up both times. This year Obasi and the rest of the Ram seniors goal is to bring home the title.
