One more time, Teddy Dupay is launching one.
Dupay, Florida’s all-time leading scorer and a current youth basketball coach, will try to break multiple world records for the most basketball three-pointers. Dupay’s record-setting performance attempt is open to the public on July 15 at The Dream Center and all proceeds will go to Academy Prep Center of Tampa and St. Petersburg, a nonprofit school dedicated to educating economically disadvantaged middle school students.
“I love helping kids and you know I love basketball and a challenge,” Dupay said. “the Academy Prep Centers give kids a shot and I’m excited to have the opportunity to raise money and visibility for this great organization.”
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current mark for the most basketball three-pointers in 24 hours was 10,381, set in 2012. Dupay will attempt to break this record, and six others, depending upon amount of time.
“Teddy serves as an outstanding example of what it means to give back in return for all that’s been given,” said Lincoln Tamayo, director of operations for the Academy Prep Centers.
