The NFL Punt, Pass & Kick football competition allows youngsters to showcase their talents in punting, passing, and kicking with scores based on distance and accuracy. Age classification is as of December 31 of the current year.
Top finishers from each of 10 age groups at the local competition will advance to a sectional competition.
