Nothing But A Number

FIVE/FIVE is the story of Brandon Todd, a high school and Div. III star in Ohio, who had one dream through it all: to dunk a basketball despite being just 5’5”.

In the mini-documentary, Todd talks about weighing 117 pounds as a high-schooler, and feeling like he didn’t belong on the court. He threw himself into Russian bodybuilding techniques to build up his explosiveness, and after years of training and discipline, he finally threw one down.

“I’m willing to put myself through all this pain and anguish for that one moment to can say, ‘I can do it,’” he said. How’s that for inspiration?
