The top five in squats on the UNC FB team:
1) Ryan Sims, Sr. - 705
2) Marcus Wilson, So. - 630
3) Kitwana Jones, So. - 630
4) Jason Brown, Fr. - 630
5) Jeb Terry, So. - 615
Surprisingly, true freshman Jason Brown is in the top five. "Jason had an excellent high school weight coach, " says Connors, "Before he is done at UNC, he will likely shatter all the records."
"He has a [Olympic] competion-level squat," says Connors.
The 705-lb mark by Ryan Sims already is an all-time UNC record.
- Both Julius Peppers and Joey Evans have broken the record for power clean by a defensive end set by Ebenezer Ekuban - both cleaned 358, and reportedly are going head-to-head for bragging rights.
- Will Chapman has broken the power clean record by a defensive tackle set by Ric Terry, by cleaning 358 pounds.
- Madison Hedgecock broke the power clean record previously held for fullbacks by cleaning 365, but James Fasion, also a fullback, broke the all-time power clean record regardless of position by cleaning 374.
