The Clarion Ledger newspaper is reporting that former Jackson State men's basketball team manager Thomas "Snacks" Lee has been nominated for an ESPY.
Lee is up for this year's "Can't-Stop-Watching Moment" award after suiting up and knocking down a deep 3-pointer for Jackson State on senior night.
"It makes me feel elated," Lee said of the nomination. "Any time I'm able to be in the company of other great people nominated for the award, it's always special to me. I had a chance to make history, and I most definitely keep that in the back of my mind."
Lee has served as a student manager for the men's basketball team for 16 years. His dream to play in a JSU collegiate basketball game came true Monday night, March 2, 2020.
Lee's shot has racked up millions of views online and landed him a guest appearance on NBC's "TODAY with Hoda & Jenna," where he received an autographed jersey from his favorite NBA player, Kevin Durant.
