    I was reading the interview with Larry Townsend and this picture was part of it. Look how big Zach is in this picture! [94 Outland trophy winner] 6-5, 300 lbs.

    LT: Well, gosh, all the offensive linemen during those times were really, really, really good athletes and good players. All of them were really strong. Brenden Stai, he was really strong and really good. Zach Wiegert, gosh, he was not as strong with the weights, but on the field just a tremendous athlete. But like Brenden, he was just really, really strong, really fast and really good. Brenden was just probably one of the better guys I ever played against.

    That's probably Damon Benning Derek Brown running behind him.

    Not doubting Townsend's quote but they wore huge shoulder pads in those days. Makes them look bigger.

    I believe that Stai bench pressed 225 lbs, 37 times at the 95 NFL combine, which was far better than the second place guy and I believe was a record at that time. By comparison, I believe Nick Gates benched 225 lbs a total 20 reps in 2016.

    I think this is Derek Brown...if I am right this is 1991 and Zach is just a freshman here!

    '92 was in Tokyo, '93 is in Lincoln but no carries by Benning

    He's blocking against a K-state guy and NU is in red so it's a home game.

    I was looking at the 94 roster and the only 21 was Benning.

    According to our schedules form 91 - 94:

    91: KSU at home won 38 - 31
    92: KSU in Tokyo won 38 - 24
    93: KSU at Home won 45 - 28
    94: At KSU Won 17 - 6

    In 91 #21 was Brown
    In 92 #21 was Brown
    In 93 #21 was Benning
    In 94 #21 was Benning

    Correct -- it could only be 91 or 93. Benning shows no stats for 1993 game.

    Derek Brown from 1991 game vs KSU. Looks like the same gear as the initial post. Also, I believe # 5 is William Price who was a senior at KSU in 91 (Chad May is the only # 5 in 1993).

    So, Wiegert played as a freshman. Impressive! Especially when you remember the pipeline we used to have. We must have more like him and Stai!

    No, that was OT Marcel Jones back around 2012 or so...he only benched it 12 times IIRC.
