The Power Team has performed the world’s greatest exhibitions of power, strength, speed, inspiration and motivation in every state and in more than 40 countries for 30 years. These giant men, many weighing more than 300 pounds, can blow up hot water bottles like balloons, snap baseball bats like twigs, lift telephone poles overhead, rip phone books and license plates like pieces of paper, and smash walls of ice and concrete. The Power Team has several world record holders, former NFL football players, and professional wrestlers.
“The Power Team was phenomenal. I believe they are not only strong physical men but strong mental men,” explained Dr. Juan Solis, Terrell High School Principal. “I hope the students learned that they are ultimately responsible for their choices and for the way they choose to look at opportunities that are presented to them. I want to thank The Power Team for inspiring our students to make the right choices.”
The Power Team has performed at more than 26,000 school assemblies in the past 20 years, and is ranked as one of the top school assemblies in the nation. Vice President John Kopta has been active in these assemblies for 30 years and was impressed by TISD students.
“They have been nothing but respectful. They are just phenomenal kids,” Kopta said.
Believing that inspiration and motivation equals academic and personal achievement, The Power Team tackles the tough issues of drugs, alcohol, violence, abstinence, peer pressure, and suicide. From elementary ages to high school, young people all over the world have been challenged and changed by their positive messages.
If you missed out on the action, you can see The Power Team perform Jan. 7-10 at 7:00 p.m. and Jan. 11 at 4:00 p.m. at First Assembly of God Church in Terrell.
