Elbert County’s Rod Rucker is an instant schoolboy legend.
The high school basketball player shattered the backboard with a two-handed dunk in the first round of the region tournament.
”I was scared a little bit,” Rucker told WSGC Radio. “But hey, I took it like a man.”
Play was stopped for an hour, according to the radio station, and the game resumed at another venue — Elbert County Middle School. Rucker is a 6-foot-4 wingman for the team.
