Saturday, July 13 the Red Devils and Northeastern will be co-hosting the 5th Annual East Central Indiana 7 on 7 Summer Shootout and Lineman Challenge. This will be the first time the event has been held at Lyboult Field.
What can you expect to see? Four fields will have nonstop football. Four fields? Yes, 4 fields! The 7 on 7 contests are played from the 50 yard line towards the end zone. Two fields will be on the turf, and 2 fields will be on grass south west of Lyboult Field. Fans, you may want to bring a lawn chair to get a seat during play on the grass fields. The 7 on 7 contest begin at 9:00 AM and will last throughout the afternoon. Pool play in the morning will set the brackets for the afternoon tournaments.
The lineman challenge will also begin at 9:00 AM and will conclude with the tug of war competition on the 50 yard line during the lunch break. The 6 lineman events will be: bench press (185 pounds max reps), 40 yard dash on turf, sled push relay, tire flip relay, shuttle run on turf, and the tug of war.
Concessions will be available all day and the entry fee is only $3.00. This is a great chance to get a preview of your favorite team and other local teams as well. We hope to see you Saturday morning.
