“In high school I was a 2x state champ at 242, competing in single ply, placed 3rd and 5th at nationals. When I resumed powerlifting in 2012, I hopped back into the gear. I have recently competed in my first raw with wraps meet, in which I feel like I did well. I currently do not train at a ‘home’ gym, I just bounce around from gym to gym.”

Best single play lifts
Squat: 699
Bench: 429
Deadlift: 632

Best raw with wraps
Squat: 606
Bench: 369
Deadlift: 545

“With a successful 1760 total in single ply, I qualified for IPL worlds in Vegas in November. The goal is to break 2000, and place at my first international meet. I still lift in 242, and will probably pursue 220 in my next raw meet.”
