A total of 10 winners will be randomly selected by Chipotle to receive 53 free burritos and tickets to an NBA game when fans are allowed to attend again. The deadline for entries is Oct. 19.

Young was joined by the Dude Perfect team, as well as Cole Anthony, R.J. Hampton, Obi Toppin and James Wiseman, all projected picks in the upcoming NBA Draft.

Chipotle will also feature content from basketball trainer-to-the-stars Chris Brinkley, Women’s National Basketball Association No. 1 draft pick Sabrina Ionescu, 100 Thieves founder Nadeshot and The Bachelor contestant and hoops fanatic Madison Prewett.

Chipotle chief marketing officer Chris Brandt said in a statement, “Playoff basketball has given us some amazing long-range shots and, with the season reaching its pinnacle, we wanted to get fans involved from their home courts. The game’s best players continue to extend their three-point range, so we’ve upped the ante and invented a 53-foot shot that represents the 53 real ingredients in our food.”
