Lone Peak High School senior Frank Jackson won the McDonald’s All American dunk contest on Monday night in Chicago.

Jackson, ESPN’s No. 11 overall recruit for the class of 2016, joins future Duke teammates Grayson Allen and Gerald Henderson as winners of the competition.

“You’ve gotta get the crowd on your side,” Jackson told USA Today. “I guess they liked it and it worked out for the best.”

And he did just that. Before throwing down the 360-tomahawk dunk (shown above), the 6-foot-4 senior shared some windmill action.

And then he also pulled a reverse windmill.
