88% of Chargers set new personal records at Lift-a-thon

The Charger Lift-a-thon proved to be neck and neck battle between heavyweight contenders offensive lineman Jared Veldheer and defensive lineman Mark Yassay. Veldheer eventually got the best of Yassay with a record breaking 425 pound hang-clean lift shown below.

The top 4 weight classes all saw all-time marks fall with hang-cleans of 380 pounds by RS-F linebacker Ridge Riebold (200-224 class), 355 pounds by TE Matt Terhune (225-249 class), 375 by OL Phil Doerffler (250-274), as well as Veldheer's mark which is the program's all-time lift. Defensive back Will Danko won the 174 and under class and Joe Stempien another linebacker won the 175-199 class.

Overall, the Charger staff was very pleased with the effort as 88 percent of the 68 athletes involved broke personal records.
