High School Teacher Hits Half-Court Shot at Thunder Game to Win $20,000 For His Family

Heath Kufahl, a high school teacher and boys basketball in Oklahoma hit a shot from halfcourt at halftime of the Thunder/Lakers game to win $20,000. As Kelly Hines of Tulsa World explains, the money will go to good use.

Kufahl is incredibly deserving not only because he’s supporting a family of eight on a teacher’s salary, but also because his wife, Jenni, was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer last fall. She has been undergoing chemo treatments but received a good report last month that her tumors have shrunk and no new cancer was discovered.

Good luck to the Kufahls. The Oklahoman ran a story about the family in October.
