Eckrich has partnered with Extra Yard For Teachers since 2018 and has donated over $1 million to date.

During the National Championship game, Kirk Heibstreit, sportscaster and host of College Gameday on ESPN, will be attempting a 15-yard football throw through a target for a chance to win $1 million for Extra Yard For Teachers. 

In addition to Kirk’s throw, a teacher from each state will be there to attempt a football throw for the chance to win a $25K donation from Eckrich to Extra Yard for Teachers.

Here are some delicious recipes inspired by Eckrich that you can easily create and share with your team.
