Boys and girls, ages 8 to 15, heard the call – punt, pass or kick – at Lancaster Park in Lexington Park on Saturday. All huddles were part of the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition sponsored by the St. Mary’s County Department of Recreation and Parks.
Age categories included 8 and 9, 10 and 11, 12 and 13 and 14 and 15. Local first place winners will advance to the Sectional Competition to be held in October.
Sectional winners will be invited to compete in the Redskins Team Championship to be held at FedEx Field in Prince George’s County. The top four Team Championship scorers from all the first place finalists in each age group will advance to the National Finals. These winners and their families will travel to the finals at an NFL playoff game in January.
Parks and Recreation will host another Punt, Pass and Kick event on Sunday, Sept.7, from 2 to 4 p.m. in Charlotte Hall at the Fifth District Park on state Route 6 and New Market Turner Road.
