O’Shay Edwards vs JD Drake

Scenic City Invitational 2019 First Round Match

08/02/2019

Soddy-Daisy High School, Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee, United States

(reviewed 08/09/2019) Not the cleanest big boy match you’re ever gonna see but I think, in some small way, that makes it all the more exciting. It sure ain’t easy to pop a 300 pound man up on your shoulder and as impressive as it might be to see someone do so with delicate, practiced ease, I think watching someone struggle with it actually imparts the difficulty and magnitude of such an act. There’s a human tangibility there that I think is important. With that in mind I’ll forgive these guys for their occasional faltering, as much as I can remember to think about that in between them beating the snot out of each other. That yields 10 minutes of snappy strikes with some real weight behind ‘em, huge bumps with even more of the same, and a couple of the scariest moonsaults you’re gonna see all year. Sounds like the makings of a good match to me.
