The school will dedicate the new equipment with a ceremony on July 17 to coincide with the kickoff of McBean's football camp that will take place at his former school. McBean will be on hand to complete the first bench press rep using the new equipment.
"We achieve a lot of success but our weight room was kind of decrepit," Trinity High School Head Football Coach Steve Lineweaver said. "We were just overcome with joy that Ryan would remember us and try to help us."
McBean's donation will be matched by the NFL and will cover the addition of $26,000 in state of the art equipment. Trinity High School will add 10 power racks which include provisions for bench pressing and squatting in addition to 10 Olympic lifting platforms.
"They did a great job with the weights that they had," McBean said. "But I just wanted to bless them with something, just to give back to the school that has given me so much."
McBean graduated from Trinity High School in 2003 after a senior season in which he earned first-team all-district honors.
Trinity High School has won three of the past five Texas 5A State Championships which is the highest classification in the state. McBean became the third former Trojan to play in the NFL, joining center Mike Baab and linebacker Garth Ten Napel.
