Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

It was David Kardelis' physics class that undertook the engineering project to understand the principles involved and get some hands-on experience. To make things interesting, grades depended on distance and accuracy. Students had to score a field goal by putting the pigskins though the goal posts about 50 yards away on the lawn in front of the Reeves Building.
