At 59 kg (130 lbs) Highschool Junior Matt Longoria broke the Sub Jr American record bench press held by none other than Mike Kuhns! Matt is a student in Alvin TX coached by Joel De La Paz and is currently a 2 time USAPL bench champ. He also placed 4th at the IPF worlds in Kaunas Lithuania. He holds the THSPA (Highschool) bench record at 305 in the 123 pound class and with still two years in high school powerlifting there is no telling what he will push the 132 record up to!! He not just a one lift wonder, he's totaled over 1,100 at 123 as well..What a bright future this young man has especially with the coaching he is receiving at a young age... Many times a lifter strays away from his potential due to lack of coaching... this young man has that aspect in the bag!
