15yo Benches 225 lbs/33 Reps

Samuel Harvell
6’1 235lbs in 8th grade

Has anyone seen this 15 yr old kid from Springdale, AR?

He benched 405lbs recently and followed it up doing 225 lbs for 33 reps which would have placed him 6th at the NFL combine this year.

Here he is.

We Arkansans just like heavy weights and liftin’.

I wouldn’t be suprised if the kid could do that. There are some strength freaks down here, but are too retarded to get into the radar.

LOL.

I can’t find anything on this kid anywhere. Where’d you hear about him?

I’m in high school right now and I hear crazy shit like that every day. The freakiest thing I have ever seen is a freshman bench press 345.He’s 15 and like 5’6" and weighs about 235.Post a link where you found out about this guy and I’ll believe it.Maybe.

What a genetic freak of nature!

what’s not to believe? springdale had the #4 HS football team in the nation and the #1 player not too long ago… stranger things have happened.

click watch video under razorback nation then click tues night sports. You have to watch them talk about Keith Jackson Jr (former Razorback) for a minute or so before they get to his story.

According to the video the kid was white.

When I played ball, Granite Bay High’s middle linebacker was like 6’3" 240 and could bench 430 (supposedly…) as a junior and squat last I heard 650. Got a scholarship 'cause of those numbers though. You watch film on him he doesn’t make good reads and doesn’t hustle to the ball like he should
