Hey, on Wednesday, February 23, 2011, my good friend, my teammate, my powerlifting friend, my classmate, and one of my role models died. His name is Chase Gaddy and he was in a motorcycle accident on Wednesday night. Chase was a year ahead of me in school and a Freshman at Austin College in Sherman Texas. I love and miss Chase so much. It has been a really fucking hard week for me and for all his family and friends. He was one of the ones who inspired me to start lifting and working out so much more. He was an AMAZING powerlifter, football player, and diver. At powerlifting meets i would try to help him as much as I could with helping him get in and out of his bench shirt or just being there for him when he was going for his lift. At football practice he was a linebacker and I was a lineman and we would fight sometimes but that is just because we both had that destroy mentality. Ill leave a video of him doing some of his amazing powerlifting lifts and some pics. But damn, I miss him so much! I love you Chase, you will always mean more to me than you ever knew.
