Jacob Hensal got his chance to show off his swing on national television Monday and he did not disappoint.

Hensal is a U.S. Army Staff Sargent who went to Philipsburg-Osceola High School. He won the All-Star Armed Services Home Run Challenge Monday defeating Russ Newbern – a Naval Cryptic Technician.

Hensal sent the challenge’s only home run into the left-field bullpen to win the contest 1-0.

The two sluggers finished top-two in an earlier home run contest which allowed both of them to compete on national television.
