Mike Trout can jump really really really high (Video)

Mike Trout is a supreme athlete. You already knew that. But it’s still pretty awesome to watch some of his athletic feats, such as him doing a ridiculous plyometric box jump during a recent workout. Trouty posted the video to his Instagram page on Wednesday and added that there were only 42 days until spring…Read More

Guy Dupuy Dunk Over a Car (Video)

When Blake Griffin won the Slam Dunk contest (that was possibly fixed) with a dunk over a car, people complained that he only jumped over the hood. That was an understandable complaint given what we’ve seen other athletes do. And watching And1 baller Guy Dupuy dunk over a car via Hot Clicks shows us what…Read More

Blake Griffin Makes Reverse Alley-Oop Dunk Look Easy (Video)

Nothing surprises us at this point when it comes to Blake Griffin and freak athleticism.  His dunking abilities are going to make for a long career of sports blogs being filled with videos that worship his talent.  I’m not trying to beat a dead horse here, but do people actually appreciate how easy he makes…Read More

Brian Maddox’s incredible hurdle for South Carolina certainly qualifies. The senior running back caught a pass and proceeded to jump over…Read More

Ravens Lineman Goalpost Dunk FAIL

Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Joe Reitz played college basketball at Western Michigan.  He’s put on about 60 pounds since his college days, and I think it’s safe to say he’s lost some of his vertical as a result.  We see football players dunk the ball over the goalpost all the time to celebrate a touchdown. …Read More

NFL Scouts, Meet Matt Fields

It’s nice to see a display of freak athleticism coming from the Arena Football League once in a while. This is the first I’ve seen of Matt Fields from the Dallas Vigilantes, but I’d imagine if he’s capable of making a catch like this there’s an NFL team out there that could benefit from his…Read More
