PROVO, Utah – BYU’s Cosmo does it again. The beloved mascot of the BYU Cougars shared another trick he pulled off on his social media accounts.

The trick centered around another slam dunk. Earlier this year, Cosmo pulled off a dunk from the three-point line that had the internet losing its mind wondering how Cosmo and his team pulled it off.

This time Cosmo didn’t start from the three-point, instead, he was on top of the hoop. The beloved mascot told his followers, “do not attempt at home.”

Tricks like this one are why Cosmo took home the National Championship title for mascots this past April.

Where does this trick from Cosmo rank all-time on his greatest moments?
