For scoring, we use the actual results of the actual players who take part in Lift For Life, which goes down at Holuba Hall on the Penn State campus Friday afternoon.
LFL, if you have not heard, is an event founded and run by Nittany Lion football players where the athletes compete in a series of physical exercises (from the bench press to the giant tire flip), all to raise money for the fight against Kidney cancer.
This is a great cause and we encourage everyone to pick their Fantasy Team to show their support for Lift For Life. To make things fun, we are asking everyone to choose three returning players and one incoming freshman.
Due to significant NCAA red tape involving student athletes, we DO NOT offer prizes for this contest. But if you finish high, you will be able to take serious pride in the fact that you know the strengths and weaknesses of the Penn State football team as well as anybody.
In its first three years, Lift For Life has raised more than $80,000 for the fight against Kidney Cancer. You can attend the event on campus (from 2 p.m.-7 p.m. Friday) for the suggested donation of $10 per individual or $25 per family.
You can also sponsor individual players this year via the secure LFL website. Go to this link for details.
And be sure to check out the 2006 Lift For Life Forum to talk about all of the action.
