Penn State Football: Watch Koa Farmer And Saquon Barkley Go Head To Head

by on July 16, 2016 2:25 PM

A year's worth of fundraising efforts by the Penn State football team finally culminated on Saturday for the 14th annual Lift for Life event raising money with proceeds going towards research, patients and programming that benefits the rare disease community.

The event, which is entirely run by student athletes featured nearly the entire Nittany Lion football team competing in feats of strength and agility pitting the offense against the defense.

One of the marquee events on Saturday was the farmer's hold as two players held weights in each hand trying to last longer than their counterpart. Fittingly, safety Koa Farmer beat out running back Saquon Barkley to give the defense an early victory. 

Watch their nearly minute long contest here. This year's final total of money raised will be announced later this weekend.
