If you’re looking for a Trojan that truly embodies the “Fight On” motto, look no further than USC Offensive Lineman Andrew Vorhees. During a shuttle practice Sunday at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, the 6’6, 325-pound man collapsed in pain and appeared to suffer a serious injury. Reports later confirmed that Vorhees had suffered a complete cruciate ligament rupture in his right knee.

Rather than call it quits on his combine experience, the offensive lineman returned the next day, with crutches and all, to complete his bench press routine. Not only has Vorhees successfully benched with a sound knee, he’s completed the most reps of this year’s combine at 38.

Vorhees received immediate support and encouragement from both Trojan coaches and fans, but the lineman’s efforts quickly spread beyond a USC audience. From JJ Watt to Mike Golic Jr., Vorhees’ 38 reruns went viral and took the internet by storm.
