LAYTON, Utah — No one was surprised more than Chad Littlewood. A few years ago, he started selling home-made cornhole boards. Then, the game got serious. Now, the Layton IT worker-turned-businessman is selling annually about $8 million of cornhole boards and bags through AllCornhole.com. 'This has basically overtaken our lives,' Littlewood said. Chad Littlewood Cornhole, once a mainstay of just backyard barbecues and tailgate parties, is now a pro sport. There are sponsors and hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money.
