INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Among the four of them, the Hernandez boys play almost ten different sports. With all that activity, garage disorganization was a constant – until now. Garage organization leader Gladiator® GarageWorks is proud to announce that the Hernandez family has been selected as the grand prize winner of the second-ever Gladiator® GarageWorks Takeover contest, worth more than $15,000.

The takeover included a full garage makeover, a consultation with Karl Champley (home improvement expert and author of "Same Place, More Space"), installation by Innovative Garages and a block party to celebrate the Hernandez family's new ultimate sports garage.

Before the takeover, sports equipment dominated the already cluttered two-car garage, making every-day items like lawn equipment, camping gear, tools and shovels difficult to access. On blustery winter nights someone's car was always left out in the cold. Now, the Hernandez family has an ultimate sports garage, worthy of the most die-hard sports fans, to call their own. Gladiator® GarageWorks has outfitted the Hernandez's garage with a Golf Caddy, lockers, maple-top Modular Gearboxes and a Chillerator® refrigerator, in addition to Gladiator brand wall hooks, bins, baskets and rugged tile flooring.

"Our garage looks like it belongs in a professional sports stadium," said Alfie Hernandez, who entered the contest on behalf of his wife and four boys. "All of the boys' equipment is organized, our tools are safely stowed and accessible and these Gladiator® GarageWorks products are as tough as they are beautiful. We used to waste so much time looking for sports equipment, but not anymore. We're looking forward to showing our friends and neighbors what's possible in anyone's garage."

From July 24 through Sept. 16, active sports families in the nine-county greater Indianapolis area were invited to tell Gladiator® GarageWorks why they deserved a Garage Takeover at On Sept. 19, selected semi-finalists were asked to provide additional information about their garages for a shot at the grand prize. While the semi-finalists received an Organization Mega Kit (MSRP $327), it was the Hernandez family who earned a complete garage overhaul.

Gladiator brand's Takeover contest is part of a yearlong campaign to help Indianapolis area residents realize the potential and value of an organized garage – from getting the car back in the garage to setting up the ultimate sports zone.
