Jesse Williams is strong. Really strong. But word from twitter today may confirm that he’s the strongest man in college football.
According to tweets from his teammates, and himself, the Alabama defensive lineman benched 600 lbs. early this morning, setting twitter ablaze with Alabama fans and others who were impressed, to say the least.
It started with a simple tweet (at 3:26 a.m., mind you):

Apparently, the world weighs 600 lbs., because a little over two hours later, long-snapper Carson Tinker sent this:
I saw @thamonstar dominate 600 lbs on the bench this morning… Incredible

Williams then confirmed what Tinker said:
And kicker Cade Foster made for the third witness to Williams’ amazing feat:
(Equally impressive is a kicker benching 445 lbs.)
Need visual evidence? Williams has you covered:
If I’m not mistaken, that picture looks like a still from a video, so that video must be out there somewhere. Hopefully, it will eventually surface. Any idea what the other SEC offensive linemen are thinking right about now?
Update: Never fear, because Williams made it to class, too:
