Linemen take the spotlight during Spring Valley challenge
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.
