Toughest opponent Gaylon Russell, Ken Penrose, and Keith "Over" Powers. Gaylon's head weighs 63 lbs! I'm not kidding. Have you seen that thing?!? It's enormous! That thing has its own zip code! J/K Gaylon! Ya know I love ya yo! Gaylon has beat me more times than I have beat him and as you can see, I'm not bitter about it at all. ;-) Kenny and I have had some classic battles over the years. He is definitely one of the best lefties in CO history. I have "overpowered" Keith on occasion, but he has handed me some beatings. We have had a back and forth rivalry. I will be the first to admit I have ducked that guy like Lincoln Hawks ducked Bull Hurley. :-)
How do you train for armwrestling? Gym three days a week, pull with Team NM on weekends.
