Washington County's outstanding weightlifting program is featured in this month's Bigger Faster Stronger magazine. The article features the program that Rick Tomberlin has built from ground up.
Tomberlin is quoted in Matt Shepard's article as saying, "I really enjoy traveling across the country visiting with coaches and athletes, conducting BFS (Bigger, faster, stronger) clinics. I have found that we in coaching are a great fraternity and that athletes are eager to learn, they just need leadership and direction."
Washington County has won two All-State Classification state titles in weightlifting and was runner up in 2000.
