Punt - pass - kick. Some local kids could advance to a National Football League Competition for their skills in these areas. It's the NFL/Pepsi Punt, Pass, and Kick Competition hosted by the Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation. Some kids ages 8 to 15 were out at Purcell Park Saturday trying to get a spot on Fedex Field. The top 8 participants who place advance to a sectional competition. From there, winners advance to the Washington Redskins Team Competition. "I would like to see one of ours advance to this competition and be able to see them on T.V., it'd be good, it'd be good for the local area," says Recreation Specialist Erik Dart. The competition was free to both boys and girls. Organizers say the event is large around the country and they hope to see it grow locally.
