The Dallas Morning News reported that the 5-foot-10, 270-pound senior from Pilot Point (Texas)
smashed his own state record on Saturday during the State Powerlifting Meet in Abilene with an incredible bench press of 700 pounds. He had established a personal best of 670 pounds a week earlier while winning the regional with ease.
His best lift at the state meet one year earlier was 570 pounds.
Teammates and coaches affectionately call him the "The Freak Show"
due to his nearly superhuman strength.
Matt Poursoltani is the strongest teenager in Texas, perhaps in the entire USA.
