Mountain View High School Football Kicker
Sets All-Time National Deadlift Record

For Immediately Release:  April 04, 2017

Mountain View High School Football Junior Kicker / Punter, Magnus Wattles, set a national all-time deadlift record in the lightweight teen division.  Magnus pulled an incredible 505 lb straight bar, raw deadlift at a body weight of 185 lbs this past weekend at the United States Strongman National Record breakers.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, Magnus immediately went on to set the national record in the lightweight teen division with a 565 lb, 18″ deadlift.

I think we can make the argument that Magnus is now the strongest high school kicker/punter in the country.
