High school student called 'freak of nature' by his own coach bench presses 700 lbs
A high school football player nicknamed 'freak of nature' by his own coach has blown away Texas weightlifting records by bench pressing 700 pounds.
Matt Poursoltani, 18, has become a national sensation for his incredible feat of strength on Saturday.
The teen from Pilot Point, Texas, stands just 5-foot-11 and weighs 271 pounds - meaning he hoisted more than two and a half times his own body weight.
A YouTube video captured by the Abilene Reporter News at the Texas High School Powerlifting Association state meet has attracted near 1.7million views in just four days.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

Watched the video. Admittedly he did press 700 lbs., but his arms are unusually short and he only pressed it like 10 inches. Anybody who lifts knows that short guys with short arms can press a lot more because of their stature. He will never play football at a college or pro level because of his unusually short arms.

I'm not buying it. Those 'pecs' came from antler spray.
