Jeopardy! contestants air ball the sports during show intros

Contestants on Jeopardy! are known for their vast knowledge of just about anything in the world.

Well, almost anything.

Who could forget the group that couldn’t answer a single question about the NFL?

So maybe some contestants don’t have as much sports knowledge as others, but what about their skills?

During the first day of the Jeopardy! College Championships finals, three contestants decided they would choreograph an intro showcasing their athletic prowess.

The trio kicked off the show by dribbling and passing along an imaginary basketball.

Brown University freshman Dhruv Gaur got things started, followed by Central Florida sophomore Hannah Sage.

Eventually, the ball landed in the hands of Tufts University freshman William Scott.

After a series of fake dribbles that probably destroyed the camera man’s ankles, Scott heaved up a shot that probably went in.

The choreographed intro wasn’t the only time finalists decided to come together at the beginning of the show.

A rendition of “YMCA” was executed to perfection thanks to the participation from Jeopardy! host, Alex Trebek.

Trebek didn’t participate in the basketball act, but how awesome would it have been if he had caught Scott’s shot midair for a thunderous dunk?

Regardless, the trio proved they are a unique bunch with a lot of character.

And if their respective career paths don’t work out, something tells us the Cleveland Browns will likely be keeping an eye on them for a future draft pick.
