Proud Dad Goes Wild As Determined Daughter Makes First-Ever Basket | Happily TV

A proud dad goes wild in celebration as he witnesses his five-year-old daughter's determined efforts to make her first-ever basketball shot. The moment marked the end of a two-year journey for Brielle Egan, who had been asking her parents if she could play basketball since the age of three. Brielle’s father, Craig, from Elizabeth City, North Carolina, said he had no idea where his daughter's love of basketball came from, as his family have always liked football and soccer. After Brielle had played soccer for a couple of years, though, she was signed up to play basketball, and Santa brought her an "early" Christmas present of a ball to practice with. Having dribbled around her family's kitchen over the holidays, Craig decided it was time to take his daughter to a local court on December 31. There, Brielle said she would like to try to make a basket, which Craig, knowing a five-year-old would not be able to shoot up to the hoop initially, let her try. After missing the first shot, Brielle said she wanted to keep trying until she made a shot. Brielle missed about 20 shots in a row, Craig said – but he soon noticed she noticed was making improvements, realizing that squatting and jumping were helping get her shots closer to the hoop. At this point, Craig decided to set up his camera to record his daughter's determined efforts. After miss after miss, Brielle eventually made her first basket – a moment that caused Craig to throw his own ball in the air and jump around in celebration with his daughter.
