CHAMPIONSHIP SET FOR WEEKEND OF JAN. 13-14 AT NFC PLAYOFF SITE
The Green Bay Packers learned this week that four winners from the Nov. 19 team championship NFL Punt, Pass and Kick competition in Green Bay will compete for a national title the weekend of Jan. 13-14 at a yet-to-be-determined NFC Divisional Playoff game.
Representing the Packers and competing for titles will be Mikayla Hilton (a former national finalist), Saukville, in the girls 10/11 division; Aleeah Baker, Superior, in the girls 14/15 division; Logan Weckerly, Monroe, in the boys 8/9 division; and Lucas Weiss, River Falls, in the boys 14/15 division.
Each competitor placed in the top four nationally in his or her respective age group, earning the opportunity to compete in the PPK National Finals and receive an all-expenses-paid trip, including the competitor and two guests, to the competition. The eight first place winners will be announced on air during the third and fourth quarter.
More than 3.5 million youngsters nationwide took part in this year's program. More information on the NFL's youth football programs can be found online at www.nflyouthfootball.com.
