On Saturday, 19 lineman traveled to Carmel HS to participate in a OL-DL challenge featuring schools from Section 1 and 9. Players worked in teams of 5, competing in the following events: Bench Press, Shiver Ball Course, Team Sled Push, Tractor Tire Flip, QB Sack Obstacle Course, and a Team Tug of War.
One of our groups made it to the finals in the team tug of war before falling to the team challenge winners from NFA. All the individuals who went competed hard and gave a great effort to their teammates. We were very proud of their intensity, teamwork, and their attitude.
The following individuals went to the challenge: Matt Baker, James Harcher, Jeff Hansen, Nat Blake, Manny Ortiz, Rick Johnson, Mike Fox, Pete Coddington, Steve Morrissey, James Butler, Doug Degraff, Torin Betterton, Jordan Blake, Aaron McGraw, Aidan Brink, Cody Miller, Eric Hamilton, Andy Delvalle, and Adam Cagliuso
Thank you to Coaches Boice, Moore, and Palazzo who brought them there to compete.
This was one of the first chances for offensive and defensive lineman to compete like the guys who participate in the passing leagues. Our guys did a great job working together and pulling for one another. Thank you to all the above for their commitment to Wallkill Football.
There are many pictures from the event posted in the photo galleries section of the website.
