WATERVILLE — Colby College junior Pat Dickert, who became an internet sensation when he posted a video of himself dunking from behind the foul line to his Instagram account, appeared on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ Thursday.

“I’m super excited,” Dickert, a Hatfield, Massachusetts, native and reserve guard on the Colby basketball team said Wednesday. “It’s been so crazy. It’s been such a ride to be doing this all because of a crazy video. It’s pretty wild. I don’t even know how to explain it. This kind of came out of thin air. I got a text from Matt Stone of ABC News. I said, ‘OK, we’ll see where this goes.’ ”

Dickert performed the dunk May 24 at Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Massachusetts.

Not long after, his eye-dropping slam created a buzz online. ESPN, FOX Sports, NESN and CBS Sports all aired the dunk.

“I didn’t think I’d be doing this a few weeks later,” he added. “It’s just so amazing,” he said. “I’m going to have fun with it.”

Dickert appeared on the show via Skype.
