For Episode III, we got four more great entries.

We start in Woodland Park and 9-year-old Ervin Carlson. This is not a at-home video, but a game winning goal prior to the COVID-19 shutdown of sports. Ervin had to game winning score to give his team the win in the league championship. Ervin's mom Vicky says her son has 155 goals on the year - pretty impressive, if true.

Keep on the East side in Manitou Springs, it is Turner Dematto practicing for baseball season in the snow - talk about dedication. And if you watch the video, you can see Turner almost takes out dad with that big swing of his. I am excited to see what this practice now does for Tuner come the baseball season.

Keep it in the snow with another Manitou Springs kid. It is Ethan Boren, sliding on the ice in his driveway, while shooting on his basketball hoop, and he still hits nothing but net.

And our final play is another great basketball shot (kind of) from Pine Creek senior Cameron Horton. Horton, throwing a football from the other side of the street in his neighbors yards, hits the shot. With an arm like Horton's, he could be the Peyton Manning of Stick to Sports.
