I love these meets. Great competition. Coupled with functional movements, they make kids, not only healthier, but better athletes. Awesome to see. Symmes and Coal Grove have been a couple of the biggest advocates for years.

Coach Carl never let us do no dang lifting and we was almost champions of the whole state twice. Dribbling ain’t got nothing to do with lifting and it definitely throws off yer shot. One time I did a pyramid on the old universal before practice and I couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn for two days. After that coach said no more waits

Kurt Roberts of Athens has to be the strongest ever from Athens County

I enjoy going to Kenton during the state powerlifting meet. It’s fun to see the kids lift. There are some monsters up there. Last year 2 burg, a Portsmouth and a coal grove kid won there weight class. Pretty good showing from southern Ohio.

Trimble's Mike Thompson actually topped him at a meet. Mike benched 410lbs, and narrowly missed 425, which he got up but it wasn't a clean lift, in the 210 weight class. That same year Randy Waldeck, also from Trimble, won the state powerlifting meet and set a new deadlift record of 650lbs.

That aint nothin. We had a kid here in Racine we all called the Whopper. I saw him once pick up the front end of a D-9 dozer. He would have crushed that state record but we weasnt allowed to lift waits because it throws off yer shot. But that boy was country strong. He lead us to five straight undefeated seasons in junior high football.

He played for "five straight seasons" in Jr High? Sounds about right for Southern. :lol:

It is unfortunate that our athletes are told that lifting screws up your shooting. It's only cheating the kids to tell them that and it gives the ones who really don't want to lift an excuse not too. It's selfish for any coach to do this, but unfortunately it not only happens but is condoned by the admin at our school cause they are old school basketball guys themselves. They're living in their glory days of he 1980"s. :?

How long does this last? Couple hours, all day, are their bleachers for parents, do we need to bring seats? Thanks.
