West High student's pingpong trick-shot video gets national attention

West High School's Slade Manning says he spent three years creating this compilation of pingpong trick shots. He tells Yahoo News:

"Back in 2009 I was filming my cousin golfing, and I realized it was more fun to try to make hard shots over and over instead of actually playing how the game is supposed to be played.... A lot of people see doing these videos as a 'waste of time' or pointless or stupid, which I couldn't really disagree with. It's just my hobby in the same way anyone has something they like to do in their free time."
