Lineman Challange HS O
Is your team superior? Do you think you have what it takes to be considered the best Offensive line in the Lehigh Valley? If you think so then prove it.
The Battle of the Big Men is a competition designed for offensive lineman to have a chance to shine. Teams of 5 athletes will compete in a series of challenges to test the attributes necessary to succeed as an offensive lineman. The three teams that finish in the top 3 of the Qualifying Events will compete against each other in the Team Challenges. We are looking for 10 schools to compete in this event and three of those teams will have the chance to battle in the finals to become the overall champion. We believe this event will bring more excitement to SportsFest and help to continue to build the competitive nature of high school football in the Lehigh Valley.
