High school wrestler vs. 300+ pound high school football player

Thursday, March 16, 2017

High school is a very peculiar place in many regards and oftentimes is more akin to a psychotherapist’s social experiment rather than an institution of higher learning.  With the plethora of different types of personalities at various stages of development all gathered together in one place for prolonged periods of time there are bound to be some issues.

The primary issue, particularly among the male population, seems to be a show of aggression to solve a preconceived problem, i.e. fights.  As entertaining as these are they can definitely become very dangerous very quickly and neither myself nor www.mixedmartialarts.com condones violence in any manner whatsoever, however; for the most part, they are relatively harmless and are a way for young developing adolescents to work out their differences.

One of the most intriguing aspects of any fight, particularly a street fight, is not only the ability level of the two combatants but also the size difference.  In the video below we get a good mixture of both to answer a fundamental question:

What would happen if a 300 lb. behemoth were to engage in a bout of fisticuffs with a much smaller 170 lb. opponent? What if that 170 lb. opponent happened to be a wrestler?

What we see in the video below answers a lot of the questions that many people still have today.  There SHOULD be no question that technique and ability will trump size and strength every time, however; that question still exists simply because there are so many variables.

To set the stage for the following bout here is what we know: these are two young men, presumably in high school; both are athletes with the larger man being a football player and the smaller a wrestler.

So which athlete will reign supreme? Will wrestling be enough to overcome the seemingly insurmountable difference in weight and strength? Check out the video to find out!
