We Are Legend Nabs 2005 LFL Crown

Fan favorite team "We Are Legend," paced by Nittany Lion captain Paul Posluszny, captured a come-from-behind victory in the third-annual Lift For Life competition Friday at Penn State. But the real winner was the event, which raised an estimated $30,000 fror the fight against kidney cancer as some 2,000 fans took in the action.

Despite an outstanding effort, the victory was not easy for "Legend," made up of Posluszny, Jim Shaw, Deon Butler and Jim Kanuch. Third-place finisher Team P.O.S. (made up of Mark Farris, Patrick Hall, Kevin Darling and Jeremy Kapinos) made things interesting late, winning the tire flip. But it was only good enough to vault them into third, behind Legend and lineman-heavy NAACP.
