KISSIMMEE | It seems Adam Lane responds to every setback with a comeback.


The Winter Haven senior won the FHSAA state weightlifting 219-pound division title Friday at the Kissimmee Civic Center where he finished as runner-up a year ago after Sarasota's Luis Aguilar shocked the arena with a 370-pound state record clean-and-jerk.

"This is awesome, just awesome," said Winter Haven football and weightlifting head coach Charlie Tate, who also watched Lane come back from a broken ankle and reel off 1,624 rushing before signing a full-ride football scholarship with Florida in February. "His senior year could have gone so many different ways. It is a tribute to him and his family. I'm just excited for his future. He has a bright one."

Lane nailed a 735-pound total lift this year, easily besting Matt Roos of Spruce Creek by 20 pounds. During the process he topped the 219-pound field with a 415-pound bench press, becoming the only lifter to break the 400 barrier, and secured the judges' call on a personal-best 320-pound clean-and-jerk to win the gold medal.

Yeah, TR was a Florida state weightlifting champ too; although he had a little bigger frame than AL.

If nothing else, at 5'7" and 216 he should be difficult to corral, and with that strength it should also be hard to strip him of the ball.

His size and physique reminds me of Ray Rice (5'8" 212 lbs.); if he has even a fraction of the talent he could be a good one for us.
