Rona wins again, but sponsor and friend Cara Schaafsma is better at 11-1

This week’s winner of the Pigskin Challenge is Rona Bobey of Daniel Island. This is Rona’s second win of the year and she was one of two people to beat this week’s sponsor, the Brookes family and South State Bank Mortgage, who went 9-3. Rona was 10-2.

The best sponsor of the week was Cara Schaafsma, who went 11-1. Rona said, “I guess my friends and family can expect gift cards for Christmas! I’m looking into going to Vegas next! Maybe we should have a basketball picks too, or at least March Madness picks - I have been a basketball fan much longer than football!”

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. To be eligible to win, you must select your entries online by noon on Friday. There is no cost to enter. If you’d like to be added to our eblast, please send your email address to

To enter, go to and fill out your ballot. Each week, we will also include a running win-loss record for each of our sponsor 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 holds on to her 3 game lead over Jeff Burton & Steve Meyer of Millennium Private Wealth. This week is your opportunity to beat Drs. Jackson and Basha of Daniel Island Dental Group for an opportunity to win a $50 gift card.
