I've never seen any vids until now so I figured I would post this here. This is an old vid from 2009 of Eric practicing with Allen Fischer. Allen gives him a surprise hit and Eric catches it and pins him easy. Looks pretty impressive to me.

Nice find

 

How do the rules work though with the elbow? Looks like his comes off the pad right away and he seems to have a much stronger start position. Still he is the best bencher of all time and no doubt would be unstoppable if he tried it more.

Didn't Larratt make a comment somewhere that if Spoto got serious about AW then pretty much everyone would be in trouble?

Yes, Devon was very impressed by his Eric's strength. He thought he had the potential to become an elite armwrestler very quickly. But no one is unstoppable.

Hi Eric, this is Calvin Pham your friend from FB forum. Do you think Allen would have had a better chance, had he posted up and attack the fingers instead? Going inside against someone like Spoto is a bad idea any way

I belive Eric was at the new Mexico State champs in 08 when I went and he won easily. But if it was him thar i remember Cory miller pulled him in the overalls left hand and hit so fast that he wasn't ready for and he tore his tendon
Eric killed everyone really easy.
