RALEIGH, NC -- Exclusive shots from NC State's annual Day of Champions.

Defensive end Manny Lawson recorded a 45-inch vertical jump at the Day of Champions. In this picture, Lawson is at the top of the backboard and still rising. He's not your typical defensive lineman.

Defensive end Mario Williams pumps up the crowd.

Williams in action.

"Super Mario" turns and faces the other side of the arena.

Williams again trys to pump up the crowd as he walks out to accept the strongest overall lifter award.

Williams and Lawson share a laugh. Together they form arguably the best defensive end tandem in the country.

Defensive tackle Tank Tyler gets ready to bench 550 pounds, the top mark of the event.

Right tackle Derek Morris flexes after also lifting 550 pounds.
