James is one of five arm wrestling brothers on the Ottawa Valley High Hookers team and the one who pulls in the lightest weight class among them. Although he doesn’t get to quite as many tournaments as his older brother Evan, he is known as a serious force at the table.  A foreman roofer and father of three young children, James is also wrestling with some personal demons throughout the series.
