Coronado Sophomore Bench Presses 370 lbs.

El Paso, TX - Coronado sophomore, Garrett Slaughter might be the strongest 16-year-old in El Paso. Slaughter broke Coronado's bench press record of 365 lbs, with a 370 lbs lift last week.

Slaughter has been lifting weights since he was in 7th grade with his older brother, but never really thought about the record. "I never pushed for 370. I went in there with confidence, but I just push as much weight as I can," said Slaughter. "I just work as hard as I can. Thanks to my teammates and everything, I just like to improve everything I can."

Slaughter plays running back for the Thunderbirds and had over 400 all-purpose yards in 2016, to go along with 4 touchdowns.
