Conroe Football hosted a "Lineman Challenge" this past Saturday and had a positive showing, finishing third overall out of 13 local teams. The "Challenge" is designed for interior linemen to compete in multiple "strength-centric" events such as the bench press, tire toss, and obstacle course to name a few.
"Its king of a 'strong man' event, a way for the offensive and defensive line to showcase their talents," said Garrett Langthorp, Conroe's offensive line coach.
"The skill guys have their 7on7 that they get to do throughout the summer, this is the o-line and d-line version of that."
The competition is designed to encourage teamwork and build camaraderie amongst the linemen which is what coaches want to see on game day.
