Every year Connie McDermott runs a Super Bowl block pool, it’s a lot of fun and all proceeds go to the wrestling team.  Below email is from Connie, please send your pool to  cmcd1223@yahoo.com.  email Connie for an updated pool.


Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday and New Year. We are now in full swing of the 2014-15 wrestling season. Over the years we have run a football pool around the NFL Super Bowl and have used this as the teams fundraiser. This has been a fun way to raise some money for the team and add some fun with the potential to win some money back. This is a block pool that corresponds to the score of the football game. There are 100 blocks, 10 rows of 10 and we will number these blocks from 1-100. After all the blocks are filled in, numbers from 0-9 will be picked and filled in along the top of the rows to correspond with the AFC team, then again down along the columns to correspond with the NFC team. The set of numbers that intersect with your numbered block will be your numbers, if they match the last digit of the score you win.(i.e.. NFC 17, AFC 10, the block with NFC 7 & AFC 0 wins)


We will be selling the blocks for $20 each, this will give us a total of $2000.00, half will go to the team the other half will be distributed to the winning blocks as follows, 

        $200 goes to the winner of the first quarter

        $200 goes to the winner of the second quarter

        $200 goes to the winner of the third quarter

        $400 goes to the winner of the final.


Thanks for your support & GOOD LUCK!!
