While browsing SLAP a while back we came across a rare upload from the filmer Erik Hatch, featuring a footage dump from the early ’90s contest, Pow Wow at Powell II. In his 50+ minute video, Erik captured super techy runs from young Ray Barbee, Kareem Campbell, Eric Koston, Mike Carroll, Jason Lee, Ed Templeton, and tons more.
We noticed Erik was sitting on a goldmine of b-sides and rough cuts in his YouTube channel, so we reached out to see if he could dig us up something special.
Erik already put out some uploads from Shorty’s Fulfill The Dream era, and after months of sifting through 500+ hours of tapes, he emerged with this fresh batch of totally raw Shorty’s clips. No music or wonky editing effects, just straight nostalgia.
Check it out in the player above and stay tuned in case we get another surprise file drop from Erik. But if you can’t wait, go to his site and binge on more unseen clips until the swelling in your pants goes away.

“Is the spot they rode horses to still there?” – that is how you sound.
