GREATLIFE Challenge 2016 – Pro-Am

September 1, 2016

My player is Madeleine Sheils.

Three pros and one am but still took longer than we hoped.

Former NFL quarterback Neil Graff was in our group. He only played a short while and didn’t see much regular season action. Neil did get to start in the very first Seattle Seahawks pre-season game though after they were created by the 1976 expansion draft.

Neil did have a good story on how he became a quarterback. It was in high school and the coach lined up the entire team and asked them to put out their hands. The guy with the biggest mitts got the position. Funny how something that trivial can change one’s life.

Another fact from Neil is that former players of any team in the Super Bowl that year get tickets. Since he was on the roster of the Steelers, Seahawks, Patriots and Packers, he’s received some very handsome perks over the years.

A big shout-out and congratulations to Max Sheils, Maddie’s dad. He carded his first hole in one last week with a five iron from 155 yards.

Then there was this:
