Jon Kopacek is his name and landing on SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays is his game.

The kid from Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, earned a "Mr. SportsCenter" reputation on Wednesday when his diving shot (off his own rebound) found the back of the net in New Ulm's first-round game against Mahtomedi in the Class 1A State Tournament.

Kopacek is a junior and he's racked up 23 goals this season, according to MN Hockey Hub.

Mahtomedi, the tournament's No. 2 seed, won the game 6-3.
