Kid to Know lifts more than spirits

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) -- This Kid to Know went from a self-described chubby freshman to a record-breaking senior.

Jack McDonald lost 15 pounds in two weeks from running. Then he started hitting the weight room.

The Central High School senior got serious about power lifting. He researched how to get better at the sport and trained hard.

Last month, he entered his first competition in Texas. He won first place and even set a state record for his age and weight class in squat, bench press and dead lift. Quite the feat.

McDonald even started a power lifting club at Central to get others involved in the sport he loves so much.
