Road Graders Challenge

The Penn Manor Lineman participate in the annual Roadgrader's Challenge, hosted by Manheim Central. This event is designed for your offensive (including TE) and defensive lineman. The challenge consists of several team and individual events that focus on speed, agility, strength, balance and coordination. Each event is timed, recorded, and given a point value. Team awards are given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams as well as individual awards for the Bench and Deadlift contests.

Over the past years this event has grown from 8 schools to over 14 schools and from 15 teams to over 30 five man teams. In each year of the event the competitive spirit has been exciting.
