PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Newly released footage of Kobe Bryant shows off his incredible skills as a young prodigy at Lower Merion High School. Kobe was just 15 years old when he participated in a slam dunk contest in 1994.

The footage was taken by Brian Gefter, a former Lower Merion student.

He says the video was taken at a charity game.

Bryant, along with his daughter Gianna and seven others, died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on Sunday.
