Video: Nate Davis of D-III Heidelberg delivers one of the most remarkable putback dunks you’ll ever see

I just came across the video below, which was posted on Saturday at the official YouTube channel for Heidelberg Mens Hoops and has apparently made the rounds, seeing as how it is close to one million views.

Heidelberg University, if you don’t know (as I didn’t), is a private school in Tiffin, Ohio. It’s sports teams play in Division III. Over the weekend one of Heidelberg’s players produced a highlight that you might not expect from a D-III hoopster.

Nate Davis (no, not this one…or this one) delivered quite possibly the most remarkable putback dunk I’ve ever seen. Don’t believe me? Watch.


No, Davis’ putback by itself isn’t particularly remarkable, but certainly the entirety of the sequence is.

Have you ever seen a putback dunk attempt incredibly turn into a alley-oop for another player who is all the way back at the 3-point line? I haven’t.

To Davis’ credit, he take the incredible setup and makes the most of it, timing his jump perfectly and finishing the dunk off with style. Those are some pretty serious ups displayed by the 6’5 guard.


It looks like Davis is a pretty good all around player, as one might expect for a player with that kind of athletic ability at the D-III level. He’s averaging 8.8 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game. Unfortunately though, Heidelberg lost this game 86-76, its fourth loss in six games.

But Davis and the school will always have this remarkable putback, which has already been featured as a top play on SportsCenter.
