I heard back from Uplifting Athletes executive director Scott Shirley during the weekend, and it sounded like Friday's Lift For Life event at Penn State was a success. Ninety-six players participated in the weightlifting competition, and the team has raised more than $300,000 for the Kidney Cancer Association during the event's six-year history.
Nittany Lions fans surely were thrilled to learn that Daryll Clark, considered the frontrunner for the starting quarterback spot, was part of the winning lifting team, which pulled a mini upset. Team A $M Here! A $M There! -- featuring Clark, linebacker Josh Hull and tight ends Greg Miskinis and Mickey Shuler -- edged one of the favored squads, which had defensive end Josh Gaines, center A.Q. Shipley, safety Anthony Scirrotto and linebacker Tyrell Sales.
