    How small was Lane Danielson when he started? I heard he was a really tiny kid, but by his senior season he was benching 400+ lbs. Is this true?

    Edit:
    It must have been Jordan Carstens...

    Lane was a beast of a lifter in HS.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I'm sure you're thinking of Carstens.

    Re: Lane Danielson

    You might be thinking of Jack Whitver. I remember Lane as being a little bigger.

    Re: Lane Danielson

    I don't know how small he was as a Frosh, but I've also heard the rumors of Lane benching 400 lbs as a Sr.

    I heard he had the highest bench press on the team as a senior although it seems hard to believe.

    Re: Lane Danielson

    I believe Lane was listed at about 6-0 and 190 lbs. That might have been a stretch but was pretty close. It was said that he benched over 400 lbs. He was ripped.

    Re: Lane Danielson

    The guy was a beast. In his senior year when we were getting beaten up by Iowa I remember watching him take out his frustrations on Ed Hinkel two plays in a row. Basically just picked up him up and slammed him down on the ground. I want to say he was a gunner on punt coverage when he did that.

    Re: Lane Danielson

    No... I remember that story being correct about Lane. He was a pretty skinny little kid when he got to ISU as a walk on, and was able to put up 400. He had a rough background... good story... one of the better guys to go through ISU and a beast of a lifter...

    It sounds like a combination of Danielsen and Carstens. Carstens reportedly came in at 190 and left around 290 or 300. Danielsen was always "small" by Big 12 standards, but he was a workout warrior. You're right that he was reportedly benching 400 lbs, before it was all said and done. I've seen him around a couple times in the past few months, and he's pretty average sized. Probably something like 6' 180, and still looks like he's in pretty good shape.

    I saw Lane in the stands during game the season after he graduated. I believe he had been working out with the Vikings at the time. He was in the stands with his shirt off. The dude is a physical specimen. I know my wife was certainly enjoying the seats we had.

    Yeah, I remember that play. When Hinkel let a fair catch go past him, Lane grabbed Hinkel by the shoulder pads and threw him on the ball, then Lane pounced on the loose ball to try and gain possession on a "forced muff."

    I'm pretty sure they flagged him, but I loved the effort.

    No flags, all the Hawks were screaming for a flag each time but it was perfectly legal for Lane to "block" him. That team had swagger.
