Punt, Pass and Kick set for Saturday

After the threat of rain postponed the Punt, Pass and Kick Challenge last Saturday.

The Greenville Parks and Recreation Department announced Monday that the event will be rescheduled for this coming weekend, Oct. 16.

The event is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. and will have four different age classes for boys and girls.

The age divisions are 8-9, 10-11, 12-13 and 14-15.

Participants are asked to not wear cleats to participate.

Gym shoes and Tennis shoes are acceptable footwear for the event.

The Punt, Pass and Kick challenge will be held at the Greenville High School Football Stadium, which is located at Greenville Middle School.

This is a qualifier event for the Regional Punt, Pass and Kick challenge that will be held in Dothan the following weekend.

"If they win there, they move onto the next round at halftime of the Atlanta Falcons that's where they will crown a champion," said Jerome Harris, Greenville Parks and Recreation Director.

According to the Punt, Pass and Kick website, www.ppk-NFLyouthfootball.com, the winners of that competition will compete against 32 other winners during halftime of an NFL playoff game in January.

The date, time and location of the playoff game has yet to be determined.

Call the Greenville Parks and Recreation department if there are any questions at 382-9891.

Remember, no cleats allowed.
