DERRICK HOPKINS STUPENDOUS GREASY POLE SWEEP PHOTO SLIDESHOW- FRIDAY SATURDAY SUNDAY FOR THE WIN

With three flawless walks, eighteen-year-old Gloucester ‘Farm Boy’ Derrick Hopkins sweeps the Greasy Pole competition Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Only one other walker, Jake Wood, has won three consecutive competitions. As announcers Tom Favazza, Al Millefoglie and Jimmy Tarantino joked, “he could have walked all the way to the Boulevard.”

 

Derrick’s Dad Rich Hopkins came out of retirement to walk with his son.

CONGRATULATIONS TO DERRICK HOPKINS YOUR SATURDAY AND FRIDAY GREASY POLE CHAMP!!!!!!!!

Derrick Hopkins took the flag for two consecutive wins, joining only a handful of Greasy Pole walkers to do same. As he did in both courtesy rounds and his win on Friday night, he seamlessly walked the walk. Odds are he may take the flag tomorrow night, too.

Thunder clouds passed overhead threatening the sporting events. Most of the afternoon was cloudy with a few raindrops but just after Derrick’s amazing win, the sun burst through the clouds. Viva San Pietro!

CONGRATULATIONS TO DERRICK HOPKINS YOUR FRIDAY GREASY POLE CHAMP!!!

Congratulations to Derrick for a fantastic win! Derrick’s Dad also won and the two make only one of four father and son wins!

More photos tomorrow 🙂
