NFL Punt, Pass and Kick Competition Success
- Colin Paquette, Blue Ridge Middle School
- Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation
I hosted the NFL Punt, Pass and Kick competition at my middle school and it was a complete success. I had 4 out of 5 students that advanced participate in the next round of competition and then 1 of those students competed at the following round, which took place at FedEx Field before a Washington Redskins game. I believe that this PPK competition was a success because it allowed me to better know my students as athletes and community members. The students that advanced also asked me for footballs to practice their skills at home to practice with family members and neighborhood friends, which is ultimately time spent playing outside with loved ones.
