One of the strongest players for Florida’s football team next season is not on campus at the moment.
Andrew Ivie, a UF defensive tackle signee who reports to school this summer, won a state medal Saturday at the FHSAA weightlifting finals in Kissimmee.
He placed second with a 735-pound total, benching 405 pounds and setting a school record with a 330-pound clean and jerk (video below).

The 6-foot-3, 285-pounder also won a state medal for a runner-up finish in this year’s FHSAA wrestling finals.
“It feels so good to accomplish dreams that I’ve been working on the last 4 years,” Ivie tweeted. “Crazy journey with countless hours of hard work and dedication.”
