Heath Sharp of Fayetteville recently took home the top spot in the Tennessee State Power Lift Championship held in Coffee County.

Sharp, a 2005 graduate of Lincoln County High School, attended Bethel University in McKenzie where he played baseball.

The win set the bar high as it was Sharp’s first power lifting competition ever with just six months of training with a primary in power lifting.

Sharp worked in the 242-pound weight class, full power, raw, where he combined for 1,540 pounds, squatting 530 pounding, bench pressing 425 pounds and a dead lift of 585 pounds.
