How much can you bench press?
That moment when you realize you have no idea how your web research brought up to the Wikipedia page for mineral water. It’s kind of like that during some of my news gathering adventures.
When interviewing Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich prior to the Plane Pull competition, he mentioned that he used to bench press competitively in the early 2000s back when he was a Cpl. with the Sheriff’s Office.
In the peak of his competitive career, he could press 485 pounds. Since he no longer competes, he let that part of him slide, but only a little bit.
When he was working out with his son last summer, for fun he stressed, he could press 375 pounds. Not bad!
Another little known fact: Knezovich has three degrees and one of them is in marketing. He confirms that it comes in handy for his job: “understanding how to connect to people is huge.”
