ADA, Ohio (AP) An Ohio town long associated with the manufacturing of footballs has set a Guinness World Record for the most thrown at the same time.
The organization certified the record after the attempt was made Oct. 25 by 950 people simultaneously throwing a football on the Ada War Memorial Stadium football field, the Lima News reported this week.
Students from kindergarten through 12th grade joined teachers, coaches, bus drivers, school staff and community members to set the record.
