It’s time we got the recognition we deserve

Here at Off Tackle Empire, we’re always trying to find ways to increase the reach of our tremendous content. Recognition and awards can sometimes bring unsung brilliance to light, but we hadn’t seen an award that really highlighted our essence.

That would have made us a shoo-in, but without that, we need your help. #OTEforFakeNewsAwards
