Most of our visitors to the website and readers of past blogs and newspaper articles or jury verdicts know that Scott Vorhees is an aggressive and successful trial lawyer. Scott has settled work injury cases during trial this past year for 2.8 million dollars plus and continues to push forward on truck and tractor trailer collision cases, slip-fall cases, and handles medical malpractice cases of all kinds. But, in his spare time, Scott Vorhees runs marathons and half marathons and recently qualified to compete in the National Powerlifting Competition put on by N.A.S.A., Natural Athlete Strength Association.
At the state meet in Joplin Missouri, Scott Vorhees benched 314 pounds on January 19, 2013, weighing in at only 158 pounds. What makes that lift truly impressive is that Scott had run the half marathon the Saturday before at Disney World as well as the full marathon the Sunday before his lift at Disney World. (He also had the flu that week.) To run 40 miles the previous weekend, be sick, then come in and bench press nearly 314 pounds, almost twice his own body weight, is impressive.
We wish him the best of luck at Nationals in Oklahoma City and will post the results soon! We know that whether he is in the courtroom, at the office, or in the gym, Scott never gives up and is tenacious and a competitor to be reckoned with.
