    Ruggles plays on the Wheaton Academy basketball team.

    A video featuring a hot-shooting Wheaton Academy basketball player is going viral on the internet.

    The video shows 16-year-old junior Josh Ruggles making 135 three-pointers in 5 minutes and only missing 12.

    The YouTube video is approaching 300,000 views.

    Ruggles, who's 6-foot-one and 150 pounds, told the Daily Herald that he practices his three-point shots hundreds of times a day in his family's basement gymnasium.

    Ruggles' coach says a college scholarship to play basketball could be in the player's future.
