Celena Richards won the Super Bowl pick ‘em week with a 6-6 record, defeating Chris Mingledorff and Michael Patterson of the law firm Mingledorff & Patterson. The legal duo went 5-7. Celena wins a $50 a gift card from New York Butcher Shoppe for her effort.
She tied several contestants, but those contestants did not include their names with their entries.
Celena is no stranger to winning the Pigskin Challenge. She won once in 2018, in September of 2020, and now she takes home the Super Bowl win. She is a prime example of two winning mantras: you have to play to win, and you have to put your name down when you enter your picks!
A grad student at The Citadel in the Clinical Psychology field, Celena says, “I hope to work with children and adolescents dealing with trauma.” She currently works as an assistant for Carey and Sean Tipple at Daniel Island Real Estate. She notes, “I always have fun doing the DI pigskin, and I look forward to next year! Hopefully Green Bay will make it into the Super Bowl. Thank you so much!”
A special thanks goes out to the contest sponsors, who bring the game to you each week with their financial support and competitive spirit.
In the sponsor competition, Mingledorff & Patterson tied with Hill Shaw & Erik Loesch of Atlantic Shield Insurance. The Daniel Island News will donate $500 to their charities of choice. Look for details on the winners and their charities in next week’s paper.
