BIG PRESS STORIES
COMPETITOR, 08 - 13
I look forward to the Big Press every year. I had the pleasure of competing in it from 7th grade until i graduated. I love the atmosphere and the opportunity that it gives high school athletes from all over the state to come and compete with each other in a good environment. I grew up in the church that started Big Press and it's really cool getting to see how the event continues to grow.

What I love about Big Press is the great adrenaline rush you get! You’ve got your friends and family cheering you on. I love when you get up there, block everything out, and it's just you and the bench. And you just give it your all and push that weight up.
The Big Press was a great experience for me as it gave me something to work for. I was new to weight lifting and this was one of the first sort of competitions I participated in. I love the aspect of how it brought so many people together under strength and unity. I appreciate what the Big Press has done for me and for helping my future education.
