STREETSBORO, Ohio -- Top gun, dead-eye, or even J-Money would be a great way to describe Jordan Matusik.  The Streetsboro senior is lights out when it comes to three-point shooting and now his talents could land him on the biggest stage with your help.

Jordan Matusik loves to shoot three-pointers.

"It's a tough shot, I practiced it a lot when I was a kid so I was always usually good at it," Matusik said.

What makes Jordan so good at the long-range jumper depends on whom you ask.

"He does not have a slow release, it's real quick and fast so he just catches the ball and just fires it," said teammate Brandon Gency.

"He's just confident.  I just think he knows it is going to go down so he has no fear in shooting it," Dorian Williams said.

His quick release and his confidence landed him in a national three-point contest put on by American Family Insurance.  He has the opportunity to represent Streetsboro at the NCAA Final Four in Atlanta in April if he can land enough fan votes in a six-week online, bracket style voting contest.

"I have a lot of confidence in myself and if I go down there I can make a pretty good run at winning because I know how I can shoot, I know what I am capable of," said Matusik.

After being contacted by American Family Insurance to compete in the online contest, Jordan put together a video of his skills.  Now he has to hope his family, friends and neighbors recognize his talent and send him to the next round.

"It's great exposure for Jordan when he gets to go out there and show everybody what he can do.  Being from a small school people don't get to acknowledge how great of talent we get to produce," said Williams.

What makes Jordan a perfect fit for this three-point competition is the fact that he has already rewritten the record book at Streetsboro for most three-pointers in a season with 59, breaking the old record set back in 1996-97.

"I think it will be pretty hard to beat and for the season he is averaging over three threes a game which is hard to do and I think it will be something that will hold for a while," said Streetsboro head coach Nick Marcini.

Jordan knows he is playing for the name on the back of the jersey in the online voting but with some help from his friends, he'll be playing for the name on the front of the jersey as well.
