DAYTON, Tenn. —

With $10,000 on the line, Bryan College student Gustavo Angel Tamayo, a soccer player, hit a layup, free-throw, 3-pointer and then a half-court shot Monday night.

And he says he did it all with a broken finger.

The feat earned him "Best Person in Sports" honors from Fox Sports, which noted, "He'd never played basketball before."

Tamayo told NBC: "My mom started crying; Dad was overwhelmed. Right now, it's a great blessing, right now in the situation we're in."

The $10,000 was supposed to go toward his tuition, but the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that Tamayo's tuition is paid, and he's all for spreading the love. He told the outlet, "Everyone wants a piece of the pie, so I guess I'm just going to hand out $1 bills."

Despite his 100 percent shooting percentage in basketball, Tamayo will be sticking with soccer and hopes to go pro. You can check out the full video on Bryan College's Facebook page or on YouTube.
