Compton High Robotics Club Wins the Jerky Challenge.

With the help of Oberto Beef Jerky, Richard Sherman returned to the Compton High School football field to accept the Jerky Challenge from the Compton High Robotics Club. The Jerky Challenge consisted of The Compton Unified School District, Compton High Robotics Club throwing 12 footballs past the All Pro cornerback and hitting 3 targets that hung from the goalposts. 

A combination of proficiency and deceit led Compton High to victory, hitting 5 targets in 12 attempts and taking home the coveted Jerky Challenge Trophy.

After the dust settled on the gridiron, Sherman delivered a heartfelt speech to the Robotics Club.  In the spirit of "You Get Out What You Put In" we were proud to provide a helping hand in this event and impact the lives of the next generation.
