Littlest Kid On The Field Trucks Lineman – You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Littlest Kid On The Field Trucks Lineman – You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Every now and then, I see a youth sports video showing a massive kid trucking over an entire team of hapless defenders. Parents and coaches are shouting “oohs” and “ahs” as the kid runs through children a third his size.

Personally, I find these videos annoying. There’s nothing to see. Place an 8th-grade sized kid with a bunch of 3rd graders, and yeah, he’s going to run them over. Surprise, surprise. While we’re at it, let’s watch Vin Diesel box a 120 lb high school freshman.

When I began the above video, I was expecting something similar. You can imagine my surprise when the smallest kid on the field trucked the opposing team’s lineman (okay, fine, I know it was actually the linebacker). The would-be tackler was sporting some major size advantage after all.

It’s just one play in a youth sport’s game, but watching the clip, it honestly plays out like your typical, entirely unbelievable Hollywood sports-clip. There is just no realistic chance that small of a kid is going to RUN OVER the other team… not to mention, follow it up with an ankle-breaking juke and a nasty stiff arm.

And yet, somehow, that little dude pulled it off.

Touché little dude… touché.

Michael Jordan + Tom Brady + Bahamas Trash Talk = Internet Gold

Michael Jordan + Tom Brady + Bahamas Trash Talk = Internet Gold

The man was always a competitor, and at 52 years old, Michael Jordan’s trash talk game is keeping up with his mid-range J.

It’s not often you see legends from different sports playing a “casual” game of pickup basketball together, but I suppose the Bahamas are a unique sort of wonderful. Tom Brady and Michael Jordan on the same team? I got my money on that squad.

As you can tell from this clip, even if you weren’t into the game itself, the entertainment value of Jordan’s trash talk would have made this a can’t-miss spectacle.

In just a 20 second clip, we get this golden line from Jordan:

“Hey man, do you guys still have Youtube? ‘Cause you better put on ‘Michael Jordan’ for real.”

Pure gold…

Send it up with a heave and a prayer.

Gotta love it when these go in. Nothing like an extra 3 points to end a quarter.

This is the type of shot you don’t practice (okay, you totally practice this shot) but on occasion, it goes your way.

Soccer on a basketball court inside massive bubbles? Yes please!

Soccer on a basketball court inside massive bubbles? Yes please!

If you like soccer, but want more epic body slams, this is the sport for you!

To be honest, I have no clue what it’s called. Let’s go with Super Slam Soccer. But whatever the name is, I want in! It looks pretty epic and most everyone has access to a court or field where this could be played.

Then again, it also looks like an ACL tear waiting to happen…

Well, just make sure your insurance is updated and then go ahead and start slamming.

Btw, if you’re interested in getting better at actual soccer, check out this online soccer course from legend Mia Hamm for just $10.

Jump Rope World Record Holder – This Girl’s Feet Barely Move

Jump Rope World Record Holder – This Girl’s Feet Barely Move

Update: Youtube’s embedding seems to be down – check out the direct link here.

Nowadays, there’s a world record available for anything imaginable.

And apparently, the ability to jump through a rope faster than anyone in the world is a skill this girl was committed to having.

Watch the video. I can barely see her feet moving at all. She cranks out 162 rotations in just 30 seconds.

That’s insane. I can barely get hit 2 jumps per second, and this athlete is landing an incredible 5.4.

If you’ve ever wanted to jump rope like the Flash, take notes.

And if you’re just interested in improving your sports performance, check out this free course on CoachTube.

This Guy’s Designs Are Making NFL Helmets Look Like Relics

This Guy’s Designs Are Making NFL Helmets Look Like Relics

Some like the classics. Some like to get crazy.

I think we can all agree that with time, even the best looks become a bit outdated.

Dee Yung, a graphic designer from Oklahoma, has taken upon himself the task of modernizing the NFL via a fresh lineup of helmet designs. Some of these designs hold fairly true to the originals. Some are… fascinating… to say the least.

Regardless, these new designs make some of the NFL’s current helmets look like relics of the past. Check ’em out!

































What do you think? Awesome? Awful? Somewhere in between?

CoachTube Offers Athletes Unique Access to World-Class Coaches

On Demand Courses Provide Opportunities for Athletes to Improve their Game

AUSTIN, Texas (February 12, 2015) — CoachTube.com, the first and only two-sided marketplace for aspiring athletes and parent coaches, announced its official launch today with over 200 courses already available. CoachTube.com founder Wade Floyd, along with his team of industry experts, created this sports-focused video course platform with both athletes and coaches in mind. The rapidly growing site enables athletes to learn skills and techniques on-demand from some of the world’s leading coaches in their respected sports.

“I created CoachTube.com for the kid in me that wished I could have learned from the best growing up. The expensive sports camps were not in my parent’s budget, so it just made sense to create an affordable option for aspiring athletes of all ages. After talking to hundreds of coaches, from pros to parent volunteers, I realized the impact CoachTube could have in today’s online-learning atmosphere, especially because there isn’t an online marketplace for coaching and learning sports skills like there is in academic and technology learning,” Floyd, said. “Growing up, I often wondered why there wasn’t a place online where the best coaches from each sport could showcase their talents. What I’ve learned in the process of building this site, is that my curiosity was shared by other coaches who not only wanted to share their knowledge of the game, but also to help other athletes reach their goals.”

CoachTube.com empowers athletes by giving them unique access to talented coaches who can help them improve their specific skill set. Parents can make world-class training available to their children at an affordable price, choosing from hundreds of experienced coaches, each committed to helping athletes reach their full potential. The platform simultaneously empowers coaches to take their brand to the next level and impact a vastly larger audience. Coaches can set course prices, with demand driving the optimal price point, choose to donate all proceeds to their foundation or simply make their videos available for free. CoachTube.com covers the technical operations, distribution, and even marketing, allowing coaches to simply do what they do best—coach.

“I have spent the past 30 years coaching tennis and influencing the best players in the world, from Venus and Serena Williams to former top-ranked Brazilian, Gustavo Kerten,” comments Oscar Wegner, famed tennis coach and founder of The Modern Tennis Methodology. “Now, CoachTube.com is helping me deliver my revolutionary tennis techniques to a whole new generation of future pros.”

CoachTube.com enables coaches to disseminate useful content, without having to worry about technology, distribution costs or marketing, all while providing the opportunity to supplement their income or to donate funds to their favorite charity. CoachTube.com makes it easy to create and share premium content with audiences anywhere in the world at an affordable rate, allowing anyone to access CoachTube from their desktop, laptop or even a smart phone.

Currently, CoachTube.com features the following sports: baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cricket, fitness, football, golf, hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, running, skiing, snowboarding, soccer, softball, sports performance, swimming, tennis, track & field, volleyball, wrestling and yoga. Courses in additional sports will be added as the site’s network of expert coaches continues to grow.

Featured coaches on CoachTube.com include: Matt Nokes (baseball), Koran Godwin (basketball), Oscar Wegner (tennis), Dr. Hal Wissel (basketball), Mike Hollis (football), Scott Newman (soccer), Carl Adams (wrestler), Jerry Weinstein (baseball).
