Whit challenges Dude Perfect to a trick shot battle

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Whether he’s inventing a new machine to teach about the Bible, sharing wisdom with the kids at Whit’s End, or behind the counter making a World Famous Chocolate Soda, John Avery Whittaker is a man of many diverse talents. And if there’s one thing that Whit has never been, it’s predictable. Whit is always creating new ways to engage with kids and get them excited to learn about God.

So what’s he up to now? Whit’s latest adventure may be as surprising as he is.

Whit is challenging the mascot of DudePerfect to a trick shot battle. Who is DudePerfect? They’re a great group of guys who have become famous by making videos of themselves doing hundreds of amazing and innovative trick shots. Every once in a while the Dude Perfect mascot, Panda, takes a few trick shots of his own. Will Whit’s challenge to their mascot be answered? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, enjoy seeing another side of everyone’s favorite ice cream emporium keeper.
