George: Wrestling with Resistance parallels the tough sport of wrestling with the adversities facing youth in Springfield's inner city. The film follows George Hargrove's wrestling season during his freshman year at Springfield Technical Community College. He travels from Springfield to Niagara Falls to Minnesota for the National Wrestling Championship.
This film provides a positive media message for a community that is seldom shown in a positive light. Tim O'Donnell, the filmmaker, also a teacher at Central High School, witnesses the stark difference in the kids he sees every day and the stories seen in the news. He hopes this film will expose the community to the potential of our inner city youth.
