Many of the members of the Bulldog football team gathered in the parking lot of the Bank of America building last Saturday to lift weights to raise money for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes football camp, which will be held later this summer. It is not yet known how much money was raised.

The players participated in the bench press and dead lift. Miguel Rangel and Machale Harville topped out the bench press with a total of 300 pounds. Head football coach Matt Egloff then got onto the bench and showed the players what he had. He put 315 pounds on the bar and pressed it nine times!
