Billy Sharmoug is one of the strongest linemen to ever play for Manteca High coach Eric Reis. "The kid can bench press 315 pounds nine times. Nine times," Reis said. "He's a very powerful kid with a strong upper body." Good thing, too, because the senior carries the weight of an entire program on his shoulders.
