Powerlifting (Boys)

Coach: Justin Purvis


The intensive weight room regiment of the Charger high school football team has become the training ground for the GHS Boys Powerlifting team. Young men in grades 9-12 — and even 8th graders in the lower weight class — who aren’t on the football team but can hang with these heavy lifters are welcome to a spot. 

We train hard and compete at regional meets to qualify for a bid in the state championships. The best score out of seven lifts — from squat, bench, and deadlift — wins. Don’t be afraid to fail. 

Come see why powerlifting is the ultimate athletic challenge. In the end, it all comes down to you and the weight.
