Video: Alabama freshman QB Jalen Hurts destroys weight room
Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts might be the strongest quarterback in college football. And he’s just a true freshman.
Courtesy of AL.com, you can see Hurts squat 500 pounds in the video provided above. Impressed? Good. Because that was two years ago when he was a junior in high school. Matt Zenitz reports that Hurts was part of his high school’s powerlifting team as a sophomore and junior, and ended up squatting 570 pounds last year at a meet.
Again, he’s a freshman. A freshman quarterback — not a lineman — mind you. Can’t stress that enough.
You can also see him bench 275 pounds and deadlift 565 pounds, which we can only assume will improve over the duration of his stay in Tuscaloosa. Incredible stuff.
