Awesome work Mr Azmoudeh: the build op from part 1 to 3, in part 3 we even got chills (even though we already knew the outcome watching PSP world cup live). Great exposure for paintball as a sport: we tip our hats to you Sir!

That's so cool to read!

I always get the chills, but it took me 3 weeks to even open up that footage after cup. It was very hard to watch.

I'll give just a couple quick answers, but I'll answer them more fully in the videos.

How did he go from D4 to Pro in 1 off season with only 1 nation even played (D4 race to 2 mind you...)
-Play as much as possible. When I wasn't at official practices, I was drilling with my friends, or sometimes even by myself, at local fields. Find ways to practice skills used on a paintball field even when you think you can't (whether it be no cash, too cold, too hot, no paint or whatever). For example, I would run sprints in my backyard with my gun in my hand (sounds goofy as heck, but hey, it works for me). It makes it easy when you get to the field because it's really all muscle memory.

How did the tryout go?
-Just well enough I guess. I really got picked up as a kid with potential, definitely not anywhere close to where I needed to be. In fact, I'm still very far away from being a notably great player, the ultimate goal.

What was traveling like from Houston to OKC every weekend for practice?
-No fun at all, but well worth the sacrifice. If you have a goal, you'll do anything to achieve it. Even if your parents call your crazy every time you make the drive. And I go to school just outside of Austin, not Houston, c'mon broooo.

How did it effect your school/family/etc..
-Ideally, it didn't. Sure, I missed some things. Whether it be with my fraternity, my family, a few classes here and there, I definitely missed out on some aspects. However, I made it as clear as possible how important paintball was to me, and it just became a part of life.

Kneepads?
Sort of, not really, no.
I found an XL pair of eclipse pads in the storm stuff. I wore those for a few practices, realized they were FAR too big, and went back to my volleyball kneepads. They are two different branded kneepads that I acquired over the years, but they do the trick. Maybe someday.

Class act, right there. I don't really follow the league much but after seeing this video and reading that I have a lot of new respect for Storm. Good luck next year guys.

Also, for volleyball kneepads. I've found them to work better than any PB specific kneepads. Cheaper and more durable.

I'm getting back into the game after a 3 year hiatus... and this film has really inspired me... I used to play D2 nppl, D3 psp, OG axbl.... I've been nervous to play again... but now I feel inspired. Thanks for this!!

Also: you should consider releasing a directors cut on Dvd with bonus features. Id be first in line to buy it.

Very nice series and very intense footage. I agree with Kazkid8 if this is on DVD I'm buying.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
