Chris Brown wins football pick'em, sponsors struggle this week

This week’s winner of the Pigskin Challenge is Chris Brown. Chris was one of 19 people to beat our sponsor, Rosie Stieby, who was 6-6 last week. Chris, a different Chris Brown from the one who played football at Hanahan and Notre Dame and who was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys, was one of two people to pick nine games correctly. He beat the other nine-game winner in the over-under spread because that winner incorrectly picked the spread game.

Chris lives on Daniel Island with his wife, Jacee, 5-year-old Felix and 2-year-old twins, Maxwell and Truman. Chris and Jacee founded and operate a design business, Plaine Studios, doing branding for companies including logos, websites, print ads, photography and video.

Chris said via email, “I attempt to run that business while also being a stay-at-home Dad. I voted for Hillary Clinton and care a great deal about climate change.”

“I play every week because it takes one minute of my time and can result in a nice prize,” added Chris. So true – this week Chris wins a $50 gift certificate to Sermet’s Courtyard!

Each week from now until the Super Bowl, readers will be given the opportunity to “Beat the Sponsor” and to win great prizes. We will email a link to the survey each Monday via a Daniel Island News eblast and we will also put the URL link on our Facebook page and here in the paper.

Each week, we will also include a running win-loss record for each of our sponsors and the paper will donate $500 to the charity of choice of the sponsor who has the best overall win-loss record at the end of the season. In the sponsor competition, Rosie Stieby retains a one point lead over Drs. Jackson and Basha as they both went 6-6 and none of the other sponsors had a great week.

This week is your opportunity to beat Robert VanNewkirk of CrossFit Discovery for an opportunity to win a complimentary consultation and Group Kickstart Program to CrossFit Discovery, a package valued at $199.
