I received an e-mail the other day from Rick Rosser, a "gym rat" free-throw specialist who puts countless hours into refining his craft, and works assiduously to extend his own personal records of consecutively made shots from the stripe. On top of all that, he adds a barnstorming component to his pursuit of free-throw nirvana.

Rick lists his accomplishments as having "... made 100 consecutive freethrows at 205 YMCA's, and over 50 other gyms and outdoor basketball courts [and] ... made 1,000 consecutive 7 times, with a best of 2,118." This newsletter from the South Palm Beach County (Fla.) YMCA documents one of Rick's visits.

Rick also has his own website, on which he writes about his activities and provides links to other free-throw masters' pages.
