Posted at 11:04 PM, Mar 25, 2020

We had more than 8,000 votes for our News 5 Sports "Dunk of the Year", which included three great finalists in Vanguard's Dominique Clifford, Cheyenne Mountain's Javonte Johnson and Pueblo East's Jaxson Herring.

While each was impressive, Herring took home the top honors with more than 4,000 votes for his breakaway dunk against Pueblo County in January.

The junior forward was a key piece to the Eagles Great 8 run and will be one of the state's top seniors during the upcoming 2020-21 season.

"I mean every day just going back and checking how many I have, it was just shocking and amazing the support I have around Pueblo," Herring said. "I'd probably have to say top 3 (dunks), it was better because everyone in Pueblo was at that game and it was an amazing atmosphere."

On Sunday, we'll reveal our top assists of this past high school basketball season, you can submit your top plays to sports@koaa.com.
