Stephen Paea, a defensive tackle from Oregon State, benched pressed 225 pounds a record 49 times this weekend. The previous record was 45 times by three players – G Mitch Petrus, DE Mike Kudla and DT Leif Larsen. Does this incredible feat even matter? That depends. Have you heard of those guys? Are they NFL stars? Here are the other players in the Top 10 of the bench press in the last decade: DT Jeff Owens (44), DT Broderick Bunkley (44), G Scott Young (43), DT Tank Tyler (42), and DT Isaac Sopoaga (42). I’ll let you tally the number of All-Pro seasons between them.
