The man you see with the legs the size of Redwoods is Joseph Pena, a senior at the Holy Cross of San Antonio. Pena is the strongest high school football player in the country. In the video above, the 6-foot, 340-pounder is squatting a bar-bending 1,050 pounds as an 18-year-old kid. This isn’t the first time Pena has wowed the internet with his Herculean strength, a video of him squatting 727 pounds at the 2014 USA Powerlifting Association Raw Nationals in Aurora, Colo. went viral a few years back. He was 15.
Joseph’s strength even caught the eye of the former World’s Strongest Man Bill Kazmaier:
“He’s got a vision. He’s following his path. What a great thing for us to be around, to enjoy.”
Just a casual 755 for 5.
