Jon Gruden has a son who’s a powerlifter.
Deuce Gruden, Jon’s oldest son, followed in his dad’s footsteps of playing football at Lafayette, but he resorted to a sport that he excels in: powerlifting. Gruden won a world championship powerlifting title this morning for the 183-pound weight class at the International Powerlifting Federation Classic in Belarus.
Although the younger Gruden’s playing days didn’t pan out, he interned with his uncle, Jay Gruden, as a Redskins’ strength coach intern last season.
Here’s a photo of Gruden this morning:
