Join the Lift For Life Fantasy Challenge

As the official media sponsor for Lift For Life, Fight On State is proud to unveil the Lift For Life Fantasy Challenge. That's right, you get to build your own fantasy Lift For Life team to see how your talent evaluation skills rate against other fans. The players are competing for bragging rights and now you can too!

Remember, selecting your Lift For Life fantasy team is not all about size and power. The Lift For Life event emcompasses 11 events which test strength, agility, speed and endurance. A common misconception with the event is that teams boasting the largest or strongest players have a hands-down advantage.

In fact, aside from the variety of events, Lift For Life also has a handicapping system which allows for the smaller, faster participants to compete with the larger, stronger participants.

The handicapping system breaks players into three groupings: A, B and C. Each group has different weight requirements for weight-lifting events.

Here is how the groups break down by positions:

Group A: Wide Receivers, Cornerbacks, Safeties and Tailbacks

Group B: Linebackers, Fullbacks, Defensive Ends, Quarterbacks, Kickers and Punters

Group C: Offensive Linemen, Defensive Tackles

Click the link below to select your fantasy Lift For Life team. You must select four players and to make it a little more interesting one of your fantasy team members MUST be a true freshman.

Choose wisely...


For reference here are the Lift For Life teams which have formed for the July 15 competition.
