WATCH: Basketball player makes trick shot from roof of hotel

NASHVILLE, TN (WKRN) – A former Vanderbilt University basketball star made a shot you don’t see too often: He threw a ball from the roof of the Omni Hotel.

Drew Maddux pulled off the stunt Thursday afternoon.

He has been making trick shots all summer long and placing them on the internet. He hopes it delivers an important message to children.

“The message is this: Anything is possible. Anything you put your mind to, anything you want to accomplish, you can do it,” explained Maddux.

Maddux says he’s not sure how many attempts he made Thursday, but he did reach his goal of making a successful shot in less than 30 minutes. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
