His name is Cosmo the Cougar…he represents Brigham Young University…and he may have just executed the greatest dunk in mascot history.

As a sports fan, I have seen it all.  Mascots dunking off of trampolines.  Mascots dunking off pogo sticks.   Mascots dunking while wearing roller skates.

But never…ever…have I seen a mascot (in this case Cosmo) launched from the three-point line like a missile with hopes of completing an alley-oop.

Incredible.  Check out the videos below.

And a toast to Cosmo…quite possibly…the greatest mascot dunker of all time.
