7 Cuero linemen compete in state contest

 

While the Cuero 7-on-7 team was preparing for state competition in College Station, seven linemen were preparing to do the same in their own sport called the Lineman’s Challenge.
 
Cuero coach Clint Coles said, “We had heard of other schools doing it and running them simultaneously with 7-on-7. Victoria proposed we do the same thing with our 7-on-7 league. We were excited to jump in it.”
 
Lineman’s Challenge is a way to let the linemen do something during the spring and summer. It is similar to strong man’s competition testing their physical endurance, lineman skills, mental toughness and team strength. This is the first year Cuero has participated in the Lineman’s Challenge.
