Coaches Corey Turcheck and Karl Petrof took the linemen to Pitt.
The linemen competed in the tire flip, Prowler sled relay, bench press and hand combat speed. Then the team competed in a tug of war.
The Rams competed against St. Vincent, Clairton, Baldwin, Gonzaga, Ringgold and Oak Glen.
Ligonier Valley coach Roger Beitel said the offensive and defensive lines would be a strength of the 2019 season. He said there is a chance many of them would receive Division I offers.
