Monday Close-up: Clandestine competitor

"Derrick Hubbard, known as "Derrick Jannetty" in the ring, works out at Gold's Gym in American fork, Thursday, Oct. 1 2009. Hubbard began lifting weights in order to become the perfect professional wrestler. Part to stay in shape, and the other half for aesthetics."

I decided to put up my second Monday Close-up before I finished the multimedia. I've been very busy lately and probably won't get to it until next week.

Long story short, I got to know Derrick Hubbard after meeting some people. I knew his story would be perfect for my Monday Close-up.

He is an average guy - quiet, polite, athletic, a student and young professional - except he has a secret life.

By day, a student. By night, a young professional. By weekend, a WWF-style professional wrestler.

Once I met him, I became infatuated with this secret, clandestine lifestyle. I'll probably be shooting more of Hubbard to get a more well-rounded story. But since I had two days to shoot and write my story for the paper, I could only do so much.

You can find my written story on the Provo Daily Herald.
