The former Southern Illinois University wide receiver set himself apart at the Games that year with second- and fourth-place finishes in Clean Speed Ladder and Overhead Squat, respectively. Owner of HYTE CrossFit in Fort Myers, Florida, Evans took third in the 2015 CrossFit Liftoff weightlifting competition with a 405-lb. clean and jerk and a 305-lb. snatch.
