Yeah, that looked like a varsity guy giving a JV guy on his team his first win.

What the fark has the internet come to? A 30 second commercial to watch a 10 second video?

Hee hee... I'll never understand why people are so furious with ads when blocking them is so easy.

I was expecting something like a standing peterson to cradle move. Disappointed to say the least.

Look, this is simple.

Schools often enter tournaments with 2 even 3 wrestlers in the same class. They have a school rule that they aren't allowed to wrestle each other.  (You don't want your A wrestler getting hurt by a C wrestler when you advance one wrestler no matter what). If they are equal they RPS for it.

SO, this explains the quickness of the match.
This explains the fact that it is a real match with a referee and all.
This explains why they are wearing the same uniforms.

Way better than nothing which it usually is.

I've never heard of any school rules that prohibit two teammates from wrestling each other. In fact when I was in high school I had to have a match against others in my weight class every week if they wanted my spot on the roster.

I'm sure they worked out who was going to advance in this tournament, but I highly doubt it was because of an actual rule.

Are you from Texas?

And I am talking about in tournament matches, not practice.

I'm not really sure how they did this, unless they used a wire. But that seems overkill for something so simple. I thought maybe the guy just jumped back himself but it really doesn't look like that's what happened.

Hrmm.

Zombalupagus: I thought maybe the guy just jumped back himself


Yup. He puts his left foot forward, keeps his weight back, toe kicks the floor and tenses his back at the last second. He's pretty light on his feet not to show more "windup" for the leap, but you can see the appropriate muscle groups contract for the movement he made.

You can see the "Oh come on guys..." Look in the refs face.

If you don't know how to fiddle with settings.. good luck with it in Chrome - last update basically destroyed it (still not playing about 30% of videos correctly - shows as a blank photo).

Kid's got quite a future as a stuntman, then. Impressive.

Nope. Ellis Coleman wasn't in high school at the time of this video, but he was when he developed the move. And it doesn't take ten whole seconds either.
