High school wrestling always gets a bad rap… partly because two sweaty dudes grappling with each other sends up the
red rainbow flag like you wouldn’t believe. However, we wrestled in high school and we’re not gay (except for that one time with Tim Hardaway in the Heat locker room). Still, when a story like this comes out, it doesn’t do anyone any good.
A 17-year-old state wrestling champ named Jerome Hunt has been accused by 6 former Parker High School wrestlers that he either raped them or tried to rape them with his fingers. However, his lawyer says that the “penetration” was a result of legitimate wrestling moves known as “skinning” and the “butt drag”. Listen, there are no legitimate wrestling moves that involve a finger actually in the rectum. NONE. Well, there is the “hold and sodomize” move but that’s only allowed in overtime… and in prison.
The victims said that the attacks happened before practice, on the team bus or at a wrestling camp. Now Hunt might be as dedicated as Louden Swain but “practicing” skinning and butt dragging on the team bus is a little too much. One victim said Hunt also kissed him so at least he’s a gentleman. You don’t just go penetrating people without a smooch.
