This is why I roll my eyes whenever I look at a high school 'croot hudl page (or whatever profile) and see some claim about squatting 500 lbs. Ruiz is a mountain of a man and he ground out five tough reps with what looks to be 425. When high schoolers claim they squat a lot, either their form is garbage or they're just lying. Great video, thanks for sharing!

My daughter and I went to the Messiah again a few months ago and it was incredible (tears, again).  She bought the tickets as my Christmas gift and we've decided to make it a yearly tradition. 

I haven't heard Verdi's Requiem live since Neeme Jarvi was still conducting the DSO and my daughter has never been, so this will be great!

I’m going to laugh so hard at all the haters this season. Big10 championship and playoff appearance are happening.

Also, I’m done being nice to any Spartan or Buckeye fans I know. I thought being nice would bring good karma. I’m done with that route.

I would look at that bar, and dance right by it.  Wouldn't even touch it - no way I could even get it to budge.  This is why I didn't play college football.  I'm a weakling...

At about 41 seconds into the clip, after he finishes the lifts, he turns his back to the camera and you can see his name and number 51 on the back of his shirt.

His "dance partners" are Donovan Peoples-Jones (shirtless) and Rashan Gary, with James Hudson (55 on his shirt) watching them.

Later in the clip,(at around 55 seconds), you'll also get a clear view of "Bench" Mason (42 on his shorts) whom Jim Harbaugh claims is the strongest man on the team dancing up front with Ruiz, Gary and Peoples-Jones.

EDIT: Not sure I can identify all the others in the video, except I think that I spotted Chase Winovich (holding a water bottle and dancing at about 5 to 10 seconds), Michael Dwumfour, Noah Furbush, Michael Onwenu, Bryan Mone, Jon Runyan and Juwann Bushell-Beatty.

I got a good chuckle out of the comments on that FB post. All the opposing fans commenting basically saying these guys can’t have fun because they haven’t won enough games. I loved seeing the team having a good time
