COVINGTON, La (WGNO) – When you’re a guy in high school, an 18-year-old senior, you like to eat.
Lunch is like an Olympic event for Jon Rushing at St. Paul’s School in Covington, Louisiana.
WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood counts the calories on Jon’s lunch trays. That’s right not one, but two lunch trays. And the calorie count for Jon is about 6,000.
Jon’s not trying to gain weight. His mission is to lift weight. Well, weights.
