    Want to Compete, need some help

    Hey all
    I am a new member here. I am currently in the military but should be getting out in July. I want to start college and get into weight lifting. I will going back to Florida for school. My question is, does anyone know any colleges with a good program? I competed a little in highschool and then stoppe for a while. I have been training for the last 8 months and have gained a bunch of muscle back. My current stats ae below. If you have any suggestions let me know please.

    Age 22
    Height : 6'4"
    Weight now : ~215
    Bench: 300X3
    Squat: 275X3
    Deadlift: 355X8

    My squats are really low right now because of a football injury to my back. I just now started doing squats again within the past 4 months.

    Good program for what?

    Weightlifting (the sport, what they do in the olympics)?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    Weightlifting or Powerlifting. Whatever I can get involved in. I did the olympic lifts in High School and enjoyed that. I want to go to a school that has a program there but I dont know any good ones in Florida.

    pretty much all major colleges should have a powerlifting or oly lifting team or group-type thing... at least thats how it is in the midwest.
