Alright Fellow Polk High Alumni. Since football season is starting, I cant help but to think about those old football memories. I want to hear everyones favorite H.S. football stories.(That Includes weight lifting and practice)
We made the semi finals in 5a the previous year, and our cross town rivals were in the lower division than us. THey were undefeated 2 yr state champs, and during this time there was a big difference between 4a and 5a schools. But they never wanted to play us. They also had ranked the number one DB and RB blue chip in the nation. They came into our house and met our pride. 10,000 fans and the news were all there. We held there blue chip RB to negative 13 yards and beat em 35 to 7. I threw some nice blocks to.
I decided to go for the Boards in deadlift, and set for number ten at 500lbs. I walked up to coach and asked him to watch me get 500 deadlift.
The whole team came over, I pulled it about one inch off the ground, milimeter by milimeter it started moving, stuck under my knees everyone was screaming I couldn’t even hear them. It took me 60 seconds of straight pulling then I finally got my shoulders back and brought it down. FYI, I shit my pants and popped a blood vessel. BUt it was worth it!
