James Hentila Sets New School Record in Weight Lifting


Mora now has a new school record holder in weight lifting.

James Hentila, a junior at Mora High School, recently broke a ten year old school record for squats. Hentila squatted 480 pounds! He holds the football and schools records for the deadlift and clean. He also holds the football record for bench press at 350 pounds. The school record for the bench press is 360 pounds, which is held by Brady Beier. James is only a junior and has a real good shot at not only tying that record but possibly breaking it.

James said he’s been working hard and isn’t surprised at his results. He also said he has a goal to play college football.
