RANCHO BERNARDO, Calif. – A high school athlete proved why he’s one of the best wrestlers in California when he executed a nearly-impossible move that made the crowd go crazy.

Chasen Blair was competing in the finals of the Masters Wrestling tournament over the weekend when he pulled out the “Flying Squirrel” (The wrestling move is 18 seconds into the video). A roar from the crowd is overheard as Blair jumped over the head of his opponent and drags him to the ground.

The junior won the match by major decision.

The 184-pound weight class wrestler is ranked second in the state and is the best in San Diego County.

Blair will compete in the California State Championships this weekend in Bakersfield.
