David Crawley  Solid pecs, arms, moves well, and does that Arnold side chest pose, holding his arms out in front of him.  4th place

Light-Heavyweights: 7 total

James Hampton  Ripped to shreds, great lines, striated every which way, he looked like a freaky Mark Wahlberg.  And this year he even had a tan.  1st place and overall 50s winner, earning a pro card. 

James Jerris  Tight build, with solid arms, abs, and a signature side chest pose.  He took 2nd in this class last year.  2nd place

Quin Kessler  Greatly improved over last year, when he took 4th in this class.  Thick everywhere, he had great arms, legs, back, chest, and posed well, with sharp moves.  Terrific look.  I had him higher.  3rd place

James Mobley  He's all shoulders, so he's wide from the back as well.  His needs to speed up a slow routine.  4th place

William Dauber  Tight build, with a V back and ripped in the finals.  Won a tiebreaker with the next competitor.  5th place

Gary Kamil  He was in the over-40 heavies last year, but turned 50 and shifted up.  Has barndoor shoulders, strong abs, arms, back, and can pose.  I had him higher.  6th place

Douglas Moore  He had size, doing a one-arm pushup during his routine.  7th place

Heavyweights: 12 total

Ron Cetovick  An extraordinary transformation over his '04 and '05 appearances here.  He upgraded everything, got bigger, came in ripped to the bone, improved his posing, and took no prisoners.  He shocked a lot of people, including me.  1st place

Don Willes  Solid, with great abs, arms, legs, glutes, traps, and a V back, pounding on his abs at one point.  2nd place

Warren Honeycutt  A veteran of this show, he came in solid, with good arms and abs.  His jerky posing style didn't work.  3rd place

Paul Lanzino  Another veteran of this show, he was tight, had a V back, solid arms and abs.  Won a tiebreaker over the next competitor.  4th place

Jack Friend  Returning from last year, he's solid, with strong triceps, legs, V back, and hits poses well.  I had him higher.  5th place

Michael Ferguson  Another veteran of this show, he had a tight build, a little lanky for his tall stature.  6th place 

Clinton Hayes  Thick chest, strong legs and back, moves well and rolls his abs.  Won a tiebreaker with the next competitor.  I had him higher.  7th place

Richard Krieger  Mr. Abs.  He was solid and posed well, with a nice look.  8th place

Brian O'Halloran  Great lean look, V back, conditioned, posed well.  I had him higher.  9th place

Tom Doyle  He was 3rd masters heavy at the Southern States in '99.  Had solid arms here.  10th place

John Kempka  Took the over-50 division at the NPC Pennsylvania masters show earlier this year.  He had striated pecs and arms.  11th place

Ron Maseth  He had arms.  12th place
