Derrius Guice of LSU is already very good on the football field. The former top 100 took the country by storm last season, jumping in for the injured Leonard Fournette and amassing a ton of production as a sophomore. Guice rushed for nearly 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns in what amounted to part-time duty and, in the process, averaged a mind-boggling 7.6 yards per carry against quality competition.
Now, though, it appears that Guice is not resting on his laurels and, instead, is grinding to make himself stronger. Case in point, Guice was captured on camera squatting an inconceivable 650 pounds.
This is strength that is, frankly, out of this world.
Guice is listed at 5’11 and 212 pounds and he has a very low, compact center of gravity. Still, strength like this in your legs is unfathomable and it is wildly impressive that Guice was able to do this or anything approaching it.
Just how much this type of raw, one-rep strength affects Guice (or anyone else) on the football field remains up for debate but it is the sport that best exemplifies the positives of short bursts of strength. LSU’s leading returning rusher is already terrifying and, now, Derrius Guice is almost doubly so when it comes to opposing defenses.
