Hi all! In the next few weeks we are showing the 1994 State Championships (the first year Waycross covered the event) "wire to wire". I thought I'd share this match with everyone. http://youtu.be/q4EK53a4k_w
Intense match. Rockey had wrestled Willie enough that season to figure out how to keep it so close. Key was to avoid bad position by taking bad shots (Willie thrived on taking advantage of such position), and stay in solid defensive position.
Willie had a few very solid offensive attacks in this match (shrug/slideby was slick but OOB, single attempt in 3rd, that russian>firemans>high crotch>double attack at the end of regulation). Rockey defended them with success, but never tried anything offensively.
