FIRST LOOK: Lift For Life Team Names

One of the many benefits of Lift For Life for the Penn State players is that they get to stretch their creative muscles with their team names. Yesterday FOS announced the LFL team make-ups, tonight we announce the team names.

The Penn State football team's signature summer event is scheduled for Friday at Holuba Hall on campus. The eighth annual Life For Life Challenge, where teams of four square off in a series of grueling strength and conditioning drills, will kick off at 2 p.m.

The first team up kicks off at 2:00 pm. A different team then goes off every 15 minutes.

As of Wednesday afternoon, 18 teams were slated to take part on the event.

You can see the teams and their start times listed below.

Staged by the Nittany Lion football program's chapter of Uplifting Athletes, Lift For Life is open to the public. It is the perfect opportunity to see the athletes up close and for kids to get autographs from their favorite players.

All money raised from the event goes to the Kidney Cancer Association. Lift For Life has a chance to eclipse half a million dollars in all-time earnings this year.

For the second year in a row freshman players who arrived on campus in late June are being held out of the Lift For Life event to avoid injury as it is too soon after their acclimation to the PSU conditioning program. The Class of 2011 members will participate in the set up and tear down of the event though.

Fans are also encourage to back their favorite players via donations.
