Prize Explanation

To keep the game exciting for everyone until the very end, I’ve changed the winner designations. First prize goes to the best score, that’s a given. Third prize goes to the lowest score because it’s just as difficult to get the lowest score as the highest. The second prize will be awarded to someone in the middle. This way everyone has something to hope for throughout the game. If you’re doing well, you want to keep doing well. If you’re bombing, then just hope for it to get worse. And if you’re in the middle, you are rooting for a scoring play from around the yard line you’re currently sitting. It’s more likely to be a low number, which favors the better scores, but this years playoff has shown that a long field goal is always in play. The second prize will not go to 1st or last place, in that event it will move up/back one spot to ensure there are 3 different winners. *Score from scrimmage, this would exclude a PAT or 2-Point conversion.

 

When paying with Venmo please make sure to NOT select that you are paying for a service. This generates a few that is lost to Venmo and will require another small transaction to send the full payment.
