HURSKAINEN'S SKILLS GETS 1 MILLION VIEWERS
UNC Asheville soccer player Lassi Hurskainen's video showing his incredible skills with the football has attracted almost 1 million views on Youtube. Before last week Lassi Hurskainen was probably not known outside of the Big South Conference and his hometown of Joensuu, Finland.
Now, the junior goalkeeper for the UNC Asheville men's soccer team is a worldwide sensation because he is now part of the latest fad in college sports, the trick shot video.
Last Monday, Hurskainen posted a video showing off his ability to land a soccer ball where many can't. The 3 minute, 45 second clip features Hurskainen doing all sorts of tricks.
Hurskainen is shown in the Justice Center kicking a ball into one of the basketball hoops and then sending the ball through an open door on the other end of the facility.
