In a crowded gym during practice in front of parents and coaches, the Buchanan High School wrestler tackled a teammate and executed a move his coaches taught him.
He inserted his fingers between the boy's buttocks.
It's called the "butt drag," in which a wrestler grabs a rival's butt cheek and puts fingers in the anus to get leverage. The move is widely used at matches around the country and has been around for decades.

I’ve sure never heard of it.
It’s no worse than the “Saturday night ride”.
Ah, yes. The Barney Frank maneuver. Deadlier than Corbomite.
Sounds like something TSA would do.
What do they call it in Women’s wresting the 6 pack carry
I was thinking that he probably is a good fit for the TSA job...
Eww! If it wasn't it should be.
Putting your fingers into another person’s butthole during a wrestling match CANNOT be a legitimate move. I can’t imagine this is coached anywhere. It should get the person thrown out of the match, out of wrestling, and likely into jail, if used.
Disgusting. And the article talks of it as if it is a normal move.
It’s only a normal move for gays.
Now THAT’s funny, I don’t care who ya are!
Me neither. That is just downright invasive and uncalled for. Should be an interesting trial if it gets that far.
Well, you know, it WAS those naked little Greek boys at the Olympics that invented wrestling!
It reminds me of a martial arts move a friend told me about years ago called "crush the gold". Another move only executable versus a male opponent.
I kind of wonder if saying it's some kind of long-established move is something cooked up by the lawyers for the accused.
Do they think you wrestle naked?
Might explain why one of my “peculiar” cousins chose wrestling in school.
Good point. I was kind of wondering about that. However, for historical perspective, see my 13.
Maybe you blacked out.
I don't think that's been done for a long time.......
Geez - I would rather get hit with the folding chair even off the top rope.
I guarantee that if your opponent rams a couple of fingers up your crack, you will CERTAINLY remember it!
And, upon executing that maneuver, you should exit out of the match, turn right around, and pound the living dogs**t out of the guy who did it to you.
Sure, you’ll be disqualified, but I don’t think they’ll EVER try that again.
I had a high school friend and neighbor who was on our school wrestling team. He made the team, and I did not, but he had me take the role of his opponent sometimes when he wanted to practice at home. We never heard of or were taught that move, in the 1960s.
Soon to be featured on WWF.
Never happened to me as my years wrestling. Seems like it should be considered a dangerous move with a high possiblilty of injury. Especially if someone tried it on me! I’d come back across with an elbow and smash there nose inside their head.
Me neither. The rules were (and I’m confident, are) strict about any moves which could cause injury. Half or full nelsons, head locks round the throat, etc. were not permitted and could result in a quick disqualification and forfeit. They even checked to make sure fingernails were trimmed to the nubs to prevent scratches. Using the old poop chute like the hole on a bowling ball? If that’s within the rules then a lot has changed, and not for the better.

“I’ve been involved with wrestling a long time, there is no such move, you’re in a singlet for goodness sakes.”
What does no one read the articles here:
“The move does not involve skin-on-skin contact; the wrestler practicing the move is pushing his fingers against his opponent’s uniform.”
“Clovis police, however, say 17-year-old Preston went too far. A police report says that at a July 15 practice, he molested a Buchanan freshman teammate by inserting his fingers deep into the boy’s anus, causing him pain.”
Now, putting Atomic Balm in somebody's jock strap is a different story...
The butt drag goes back to the original Olympics.
It’s still used in Turkish wrestling which is the most similar to ancient forms of what we call Greco-Roman wrestling.
It’s not his fault....he saw The Won doing to the country and figured it HAD to be OK.
I will say, if it did exist as a move, and someone had tried it on me they wouldn't have had an arm left at the end of the match.
The following are fouls, as set out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission:
Putting a finger into any orifice or into any cut or laceration on an opponent. (see Gouging).."
We need Linda McMahon’s input on this.
Fireman’s Carry (for San Francisco firemen).
Do you really think a ref would not see that and penalize the perv that did it?
“I wrestled in H.S., but don’t remember anything like this”
You are among friends... we won’t judge you!
>>I wrestled in H.S., but don’t remember anything like this.<<
That’s because we didn’t have KY Jelly back then.
I knew there was a reason my kids preferred hockey to wrestling, but I was never able to put my finger on it.
I found a pretty good clip on the move on Youtube. The poster was trying to be funny with the soundtrack, but it does show the “Butt drag” being used in a number of high school wrestling matches.
BTW, my older brother was a top notch wrestler, and I don’t remember him ever using anything like that!
“but I was never able to put my finger on it”
Apparently, you can’t in wrestling, either.
Videos of the move:
Yes, safe for work.
My step son Westeled and so did my nephews, none of them ever used this move and I am sure they would have balked at using it. The crap about it being widely used is so much BS.
L O L ! ! !
The only move that would even be in the same area is pulling the opponents arm between their legs from behind and driving that up the backside. Still a far cry from fingers in the @ss. Nope! Someone pulling that on me would have changed it from a wrestling match to a fight.
You can’t put your fingers in your opponents mouth, eyes or anus. The last one constitutes anal rape, the first two get you disqualified.
