Check out Tee as he prepares himself for the ultimate display of 220 power at RUM VII! Although lifting on day two, Tee will be part of a weight class consisting of lifters like Jay Nera, Jeremy Hamilton and the Boss himself Dan Green! On day 2 Tee will be in head to head competition with 9 other competitors that will consist of Mike Bishop, Greg Wise, John Petruzzi and Carlos Moran. Should be an exciting show in that stacked division!
