    Martin was injured and in rehab so I think that had a lot to do with his performance. Ever have a sports injury? If you have you know what I mean.

      If that was the case why not wait until SUCC’s pro day. Of course ” If you have you know what I mean.”

        Or skip the bench press. I think you can skip certain events.

          Sounds reasonable too me. Personally, I would rather have an O lineman with superior technique than the strongest O lineman.

      Xavier Su’a-Filo barely beat Martin.

      • SUCC de trop

        I doubt Xavier was competing.

        • Marv Elapes

          True, he is a ruin.

        • TrojanFan3.0

          That’s why he chose ucla!

  • WESTWOOD ROB

    That is WEAK. I’m saying it right to your face Martin. WEAK.

    • TrojanFan3.0

      Wolf and bucket combined could not even do one rep. now that’s WEAK!

    Why is the bench press even considered a measure of a football player’s strength? Why not squats, deadlifts, or snatches?
