The Art of Acrobatic Dunking

Let there be flight! That’s the mantra of Acrodunk, and it couldn’t be more true. It’s one thing to see the high-flying dunk team in action – it’s another to get off the sidelines and do it yourself. That’s what I did (as evidenced toward the end of the story). I sat down with Jerry Burrell, founder of Acrodunk and former Houston Rockets mascot. Burrell wowed crowds during Rockets halftime shows in the 80’s and 90’s as Booster, and then his alter ego, Turbo.  Learn more about how Acrodunk formed, including how they prepared for both of their America’s Got Talent performances, and who really coined the term – Acrodunk!
