(VIDEO) Maryland first-grader makes free throw to give his entire school the day off

Joe Flacco never faced this much pressure.

According to the person who uploaded the above video to YouTube, first-grader Blake Harper of the Mater Dei School in Bethesda, Md., stepped to the free throw line last week with a chance to give his entire school the day off on Super Bowl Monday.

All Harper had to do was make the shot, something a Mater Dei seventh- and eighth-grader failed to do from 3-point range only moments before.

After his older -- and presumably stronger and taller -- schoolmates missed, Harper coolly sank his free throw to set off a raucous celebration. 

Thanks to The Big Lead for the heads up.
