On Saturday, October 17th, the Boys & Girls Club of Elizabethton/Carter County held their first annual Punt, Pass & Kick competition at Citizens Bank Stadium.

Over 25 players in grades 1st – 5th participated in five football clinics over the past Saturdays and finished off the event with the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition.

Each player received instructions on the fundamentals of football along with techniques in punting, passing and kicking.

The grade level winners of the competition were, 1st grade Dakari Nave, 2nd grade Camilo Rincon, 4th grade William Sommer and 5th grade Rex Colbaugh.

The BGCECC would like to thank Ryan Witten (Clinic instructor), Matt Lewis (clinic staff), Tommy Vaughn (clinic staff), Keith Bowers (clinic staff), William Bowers (clinic staff) and Tom Taylor (PA announcer for the competition).

The club would also like to thank the EHS football players that took the time to come by and speak to the participates.

“It was a major success”, stated Rik Anderson (Athletic Director at the club). “The kids got some valuable instruction on football from one of the best in Coach Witten and got to display some of their talents in the Punt, Pass & Kick competition.

“The staff did a tremendous job of assisting and also gave some really good instructions themselves. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it and it looked really good to see them all huddled up with their Boys & Girls Club PPK shirts on and the big smiles on their faces. We couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
