50-hour Record-Setting Football Game
Today at 5 p.m. Lee University service club Alpha Gamma Chi will attempt the world’s longest continuous flag football game, “THE GRIDIRON.” Funds raised by the endeavor will go to Build a City, a project developed by Cleveland-based nonprofit People for Care and Learning to benefit the Andong community in Cambodia. The game, which is sponsored by Murmaid Mattress, will be filmed and officially logged in compliance with the Guinness Book of World Records submission standards. Chi members will play the first 48 hours on Lee’s Souther Field located on the corner of 20th and Parker streets. The final two hours will be played Saturday, 5-7 p.m., on Lee’s soccer field. Participants and supporters can contribute to the funding goal through drawings, auctions, Gridiron apparel, concessions and direct donations online or via texting “Build” to “20222.” Pictured here are Chi members: front row (l to r) Tres Winn, Ryan Hartman, Cody Smith, David Turpin, Taylor Trotter, Scott Douglas, Josh Power, Jordan Farmer; middle row (l to r): Trey Bonny, Preston Holland, Clayton Wootton, Michael Tapp, Caleb Bagwell, Jordan Willcutt, Dominick Konsulis, Todd Hammond, Josh Brown, Elliott Potter, Ty Wootton, Michael Young, Zach Brooks, Neiman Davis, Cohen Whittington, Matt Cook, Austin Arnwine; back row (l to r): Jared Rogers, Josh Mitchell, Garren McCloud, Timothy Davis, Derek Murray, Devin Walker, Clayton Thompson, Jeremiah Baker, and Caleb Dick.
