Tribute to Noah Jefferies!
Although I never met Noah, I think I have a pretty good idea as to what kind of a man he was. 1st of all his father is @budjeffries . Bud is absolutely incredible. I'm sure that anyone in close proximity to Bud is going to be strong, fierce and an outstanding citizen. Noah seems to have been all of those things plus some. Infact, I would say that if Bud Jeffries is superhuman (and he is), then Noah Jeffries was a superhero!
Not too long ago Bud posted a picture of Noah with a HUGE log on his shoulder. While holding the log, he was levering an axe! This picture told me alot about Noah. Thats the type of strength and the type of image that got me into strongman. The ability to do real world tasks, simultaneously and with control! He was not lifting this log and holding it at lockout for a fraction of a second, then haphazardly letting it fall. He was standing erect, with great composure and levering an axe towards his face at the same time. If that doesn't tell you that Noah was strong, confident & fearless, nothing will.
After seeing @steveschmidt75 do a tribute video. I knew that I had to do 1 (thanks for the idea Steve!). So I decided to replicate the aforementioned feat. Originally I was just going to post the final levering of the axe, but I think the full struggle needs to be seen here. This was not an easy feat for me. I was nowhere near as composed as Noah appeared to be (and his log was WAAAYY bigger!). *I did fast forward the positioning of the log and axe.
