In the video above, from the YouTube page, Living in the Past, Byrd’s shot came in at No. 5 on the “ESPN SportsCenter Top 10” plays for the day.
“I can’t believe this is No. 5,” one of the hosts of the show says in the video, “but we’re giving Caleb Byrd his due.”
Byrd’s shot sent Mauldin to the Class AAAAA Upper State Championship game on Saturday at Bob Jones University in Greenville. Mauldin will play Ridge View in the state semifinals game at 7 p.m.
The shot also ran as a part of “SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt” late Monday night.
