Dearborn bowler throws three perfect games, nets 900

It's hard enough to throw more than one strike in a row, but imagine trying to throw 12 strikes, three times in a row. A Dearborn bowler did exactly that, throwing 36 straight strikes for 3 perfect games. It's called a 900 in the bowling world.

David Sewesky is the Dearborn bowler to throw the amazing frames. He was bowling at Plaza Lanes in Plymouth on Sunday when the amazing happened. He started throwing strikes and didn't stop.

36 strikes in a row to get his 900 series. The feat is so rare, only 25 other people in history have ever done it. David makes 26.

In the process, he became an overnight celebrity. A day after his historic showing, he was still a bit in shock.

"You know, it hasn't really sunken in. My phone has been exploding since yesterday. I think, starting last night and this morning, it's really sinking in, the magnitude of the accomplishment," David said.

Aside from the 900 achievement, he also broke his own house record of 888 that he set at the lanes two weeks ago.

David is 27 and carries a 230 average but he hasn't quit his dayjob yet.

"I am a supervisor at Helm incorporated, we do branding merchandising. A lot of people ask me 'when you gonna go pro?' I gotta pay the bills. Bowling is actually a grueling sport. Those pros, I know they throw 200 games a week. I'm not saying I couldn't do it, but I know it takes a lot of traveling, away from the family. It's always an option but I've never considered it yet," David said.

While a 900 is rare, it's not as rare as winning Powerball. So maybe it's time to buy a ticket, David.
