Jon Gruden has a son who’s a powerlifter.

Deuce Gruden, Jon’s oldest son, followed in his dad’s footsteps of playing football at Lafayette, but he resorted to a sport that he excels in: powerlifting. Gruden won a world championship powerlifting title this morning for the 183-pound weight class at the International Powerlifting Federation Classic in Belarus.
