Half-court shot earns 11-year-old free pizza for a year (or not)

Free pizza for a year? That’s every kid’s dream. Heck, it might be every adult’s too.

That makes Cody Collins the envy of just about everyone in the U.S.

The 11-year-old hit a half-court shot during halftime of Thursday’s game at Kennesaw State, resulting in free ‘za for a year from Papa John’s.

My guess is Collins’ buddy who celebrates with him in the video is going to be eating quite a few slices himself.

UPDATE: Or not. Turns out all the kid got was a $500 gift card. I say “all,” but let’s be honest. That’s hardly a year of free pizza.
