Sunday sorbet: Satchel, 2013 Eagle Open Champion
Yes, I’m a proud poppa. Can you tell? Also, please ignore the bit of ass you can see in the championship match as I kneel mat side. My wife couldn’t have captured a more unflattering angle.
Besides, it’s about the boy, not me.
Match one, Satch wins 8-0. Video lost to a crapped-out cell phone. The short of it: Satch kept wrist control and essentially rode the kid all three rounds.
Match two, Satch wins 4-2 in OT over the bracket favorite, who isn’t accustomed to losing, particularly in his home city. Check out the take down his opponent scored on: hands clasped, no arm in, near the mat’s edge. Was it even legal?
Match three, Satch wins the championship, 8-1.
