"Shute, nobody wants to wrestle Shute"

Recommended Posts

Just a short Vision Quest story to get everybody excited and to get out of the pre-season wrestling doldrums.  So I  was on Facebook and  I have an old wrestling buddy who is friends with Frank Jasper "AKA Brian Shute".   My buddy got an awsome autographed picture from Frank of the legendary stadium log scene.  I had a little conversation with Frank, and he answered some questions. He was at 4% body fat for the movie and that log was real and weighed a 100 pounds.   That kind of made my day and thought i would share it.  Frank  is a fitness  guru and sells "Shute Shirts".   Here's the link https://www.shuteshirts.com/?fbclid=IwAR0fYW0aPCLB4wqM247T6-FdX1Ydue_7fza3I15wOc38nio_E4D-W75189o .     Im just curious as to how many of today's high school kids have seen Vision Quest.

I read an interview Jasper that it was a real log, but hollowed out.  We used to train with using 6-8 or so guys per log in the USMC and it would probably take a guy like Chris Taylor to probably even deadlift a full log or telephone pole.  Japser was a legit wrestler, though.  I think he was into body building at the time and had to cut a ton to get down to weight for the film.  I'll try to find the article.  Thanks for posting this.
