They might be the most underappreciated competitors in all of sports, but Saturday was for the linemen during the Spring Vale Lineman Challenge – now in its sixth year.
Spring Valley head coach Andrew Delva teamed up with former NFL player and fellow Tigers alumni Phil Bogle for a full day of weight lifting, tire rolls and competition dedicated to the big guys up front.
The competition attracted 13 teams from across the tri-state area.
"A day like this is just priceless, you don't get days like this anywhere else,” said Bogle. “It's just a great event.”
Highlights from the day included the always popular tug-of-war and pushing a truck, which weighs a few tons.
