1996 APF Senior National Champion in the superheavywieght class (843, 633, 693) Jim remembers this one well because his training went really well, only to have a quad injury on my second squat, thus a reduced squat and deadlift

1996 WPC World Championships-second place (848, 573, 717) Lifted despite a doctor's suggestion not to due to a torn pec. He commented that, "This sucked because my bench was really starting to take off."

1997 APF Senior National Champion in the superheavywieght class (881, 567, 727) Began benching with a reverse grip to take the stress of the torn pec

1998 APF Seniors National Champion (2242 total, and went 8 for 8. Squat: 909, Bench: 600 (reverse grip due to my pec) and Dead: 733)
