Senior Landon Reyes popped his hip out of place deadlifting 495.

¨One second I was deadlifting and the next I was on the ground in pain,¨ Reyes said.

Going to physical therapy meant taking things slow, for Reyes that meant pushing more. Now deadlifting 315 after only two months of physical therapy.  

This year would have been his last year to play football, the year he had been waiting for, only to pop it out once again while at the first practice.

After battling all of his injuries he has come up with a new method of helping him push through deadlifting

¨Sometimes I close my eyes while deadlifting, it helps me not think about the weight, that’s usually what scares people the most,” he said.
