This year’s 275 lb New York State Division 1 Champion was an absolutely BEAST. Easily the best physical specimen at the NYS Tourney. He would easily be in the top 1% of all T-Nation readers physique and strength wise. The dude’s arms were the size of most wrestlers’ necks and his legs split his singlet.
The crazy thing was that he weighed 202 lbs a week State qualifiers and had to GAIN 13 lbs to be able to wrestle 275 (you have to weigh at least 215 to wrestle 275), which he did mostly through milk shakes and chugging last mintue water. He’s about 5’11. Talk about relative strenght.
He bumped because he couldn’t take his teammate at 215, who ended up taking 2nd in Junior Nationals and 2nd in the States. At the States he wrestled legit 275 lbers who suck down to make 275 and made them look like boys. I’m pretty sure he pinned everybody until the States. He SUPLEXED a sumo-esque 275 lber in the quarterfinals like it was a pro-wrestling match right onto his neck but kept it under control so it was legal. After the “kid” hit the ground it looked like he had literally killed him because he didn’t move for a few seconds. The video doesn’t do his body justice, but shows how “small” he was compared to the dudes he wrestled. Anyhow, enough with the rant.
