You need strength, you need coordination and you need finesse to come out on topic in this competition.

I am talking about "American Ninja Warrior!"

And an Atlantic County native is actually one of the finalists for Season 11 and tonight, the first episode of the finals will air!

His name is Michael Torres and he grew up in Buena but he now is living in Illinois! (I am thinking he got his awesomeness from his time in the Garden State) 

He has already competed on Season 8 where he became the youngest Ninja Warrior in the nation to compete and he even earned a trip to the national finals in his rookie year! He also competed on Season 9 and "Ninja vs. Ninja."

Now unlike other seasons, the Season 11 finals of "American Ninja Warrior" will last for four two-hour-long episodes all of which will air at 8:00 PM EST.

Here are the air dates: August 26th, September 2nd, September 9th and September 16th!

Good luck Torres! I know you will make South Jersey proud!
