Packers finalists qualify for NFL Punt, Pass and Kick National Finals

Posted Jan 9, 2013

Wisconsinites to be spotlighted by FOX with all 40 champions at Atlanta Falcons playoff game this Sunday

Forty young athletes from across the country will compete in the NFL PUNT, PASS & KICK National Finals on Saturday, Jan. 12, in Atlanta during the weekend of the NFL Divisional Playoffs. A special on-field award presentation will air during the Atlanta Falcons-Seattle Seahawks NFC Divisional Playoff Sunday, Jan. 13 on FOX. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET.

The Green Bay Packers’ representatives, Ava Reuter, Chippewa Falls, Wis.; Alayna Suprenand, Fond du Lac, Wis.; and Jack Noffke, New London, Wis., will be competing after winning their age divisions in the Packers’ team championship competition, Dec. 9, in the Don Hutson Center.

Finalists will compete separately in five age divisions at the Falcons’ team facility with the top scorer in each group crowned national champion. All participants launch two punts, two passes and two kicks with scores based on distance and accuracy (in feet). The best score from each activity is tabulated to determine the athlete’s total. All youngsters advanced to the national finals through local, sectional and team championship competitions held throughout the NFL regular season. The top four scorers in each age group from across the country qualified as national finalists.

NFL Punt, Pass & Kick, which began in 1961, is celebrating its 51st anniversary. It is the nation’s largest grassroots sports skills competition. NFL stars – including Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterbacks TROY AIKMAN and DAN MARINO – competed in the Punt, Pass & Kick program as youngsters.

All participants and their guest are provided airfare, hotel accommodations and tickets to the Falcons-Seahawks NFC Divisional Playoff.
