Here's the $10,000 challenge: Make a layup, a free throw, a three-pointer and a half-court shot in 30 seconds.

That challenge would be hard even for an NBA player, so imagine how tough it would be for someone who doesn't play basketball at all.

Unbelievably, Bryan College student Gustavo Angel Tamayo, who grew up in England, beat the odds and won himself some tuition money. It is even more remarkable considering he is a soccer player who has never played basketball before.

"It's just football [soccer], that's all I do," Tamayo said, per Ellis Smith of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. "And I had a broken finger on my left hand."

The senior incredibly went 4-of-4 on his shots and was able to beat the clock. That set off a huge celebration in the gym, with nobody happier than a student who just won $10,000.
