    WEEK #12 - 2023 UPDATE (FINAL)


    After 12 weeks, we have our champion!

    Congratulations to David Famula for winning the 8th annual Austin Hardware Charity Football Pool.

    Week 12 came down to our final two players; David and this year's runner-up, Robert Carmer.

    David advanced Sunday afternoon when the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Arizona Cardinals 37-14. The game held little intrigue after the first quarter when Arizona led 8-7. The Rams subsequently scored 30 unanswered points to cruise to victory.

    The final result came down to the Monday night game between the Chicago Bears and Robert’s pick of the Minnesota Vikings. Despite not scoring a touchdown, the Bears were able to parlay four Cairo Santos field goals into a 12-10 upset victory on the road over the Vikings, thus eliminating Robert from the pool. Ironically, last year’s winner was also determined on a Monday night by a Bears victory. 

    Week #12 by the numbers:
    2 players started Week #12
    1 eliminated
    1 Winner – Congratulations to David Famula

    David will have the opportunity to decide which charity he’d like us to donate to in his name. Please follow us on social media, or check back here to see what he decides. 

    We thank everyone for playing and our sponsors for participating in our Charity Football Pool for the 2023 season. We hope you had fun and look forward to having everyone back again next year.


    The Austin Hardware Charity Football Pool aims to foster some fun and friendly competition while also giving back. We've selected a handful of wonderful charitable organizations and will make a donation in the name of the winner(s) to one or a combination of them.
