LSU’s 2024 quarterback commit Colin Hurley‍ may only be 15 years old, but that doesn’t stop him in the weight room. Take a look at his impressive weight room perfromance.

In the video Hurley deadlifts 500 pounds. He says he actually has deadlifted up t0 550 pounds.

On squat, he has 405 pounds loaded on the bar, and the chains add another 120 pounds for total of 525 pounds.

As part if his weight training program, they monitor bench press carefully he says. Hurley says they rarely do max lifts for bench press, but he can do at least 12 reps of 225 pounds.

“LSU is not getting an itty bitty QB,” Hurley joked. “I just love the gym. It’s a big part of what I do on the field.

“There are so many pieces to playing the game and position at a high level. Dr. Tom Gormely, designs all of my lifts, sprints and arm care. He’s arguably one of the top minds in the fields of Sports Performance and Throwing. He programs all of my lifts and architects my throwing regimens with QB Coach Will Hewlett. Dr. Gormely understands sequencing, rotating, and all of the science behind throwing at an ‘elite level.’ He also has helped me to become strong, powerful and explosive in my lifts.”
