Varsity Letters News and notes on Baltimore area high school sports

This Long Reach basketball player's Christmas gift will get you in the holiday spirit

There’s not much to be said about Long Reach boys basketball senior CJ Thompson’s viral video that he hasn’t said already.

So without further ado, take it from the top, CJ:

Thompson was hoping to buy a different belt. Shanquis loved it anyway. “Thank you for being so thoughtful!” he wrote.

As of early Saturday morning, less than a day after its posting, the video had been viewed over 2.5 million times. WWE wrestler Sasha Banks retweeted the post to her 1.36 million followers.

So did wrestler Cory Machado, who invited the pair to a National Pro Wrestling League event in March.

They’re already Maryland’s most popular tag team.
