Jacksonville Community College player dunks from the free throw line

It's hard to believe, in a day and age when even the most rudimentary of cell phones still feature a video option, that a breathtaking moment in sports can go undocumented.

This clip of Jacksonville Community College sophomore Daniel Skinner dunking from the free throw line in a game against Tyler Junior College nearly did — not because there weren't cameras around to film the feat, but because Skinner performed it so quickly that you need super slow-motion in order to give him the proper dap.

Here's the Michael Jordan-esque clip, via the Lum Newberg IV, as shared at ClutchFans.net's message board:

Tyler freshman guard Todd Eaglin never knew what hit him. Neither did the referee, apparently, as he quickly called Skinner for a charge even if Eagling was moving his feet as he attempted to shield himself from YouTube infamy take the charge.

We can't find any of Skinner's in-game or season-long statistics, though we can tell you his Jaguars defeated the Tyler Apaches in overtime by a 91-89 score despite the charge call gone wrong, Skinner's two points that were disallowed and the nixed potential free throw that could have been the difference in regulation.

As a poster later down the ClutchFans thread noted, the referee in this instance clearly had a lack of clarity not unlike Matt Walsh's classic referee character from the movie 'Semi-Pro.'
