I am so proud to be a part of the C3 Fantasy Football Challenge. Not only is this going to be an incredible amount of fun, but I'm also proud to point out that a portion of the entry fees are going to help fight cancer. We've all been touched by the disease in some form or fashion. We are also giving away Panther Prizes including a Benjamin Jersey, a DeAngelo Williams signed mini-helmet (already awarded to Jason Saulter!) and weekly panther prizes to the high-scorer in this four division 48-team Fantasy Football Battle Royale. It is going to be a blast talking smack with fellow Panther Fans throughout the season.
Now four of us here at C3 have been tasked with naming the divisions in the league and we are naming them after former Panther players (not still in the NFL) and explaining why we picked them. Well I got to choose first and the name of my 12-team division is named after the legendary Sam Mills.
One other personal story about Sam that I'd like to share is that one winter day, he sat in my wife’s office at a BOA branch in Ballantyne and wept as he told her that the Panther players were paying his way to the upcoming Pro Bowl. The players did so because they were so motivated by him during their Super Bowl run while watching him run up and down the stadium steps (all while going through Cancer treatment). My wife was so moved by this she was moved to tears herself and still talks about this fondly to this day.
