|This is a call to all kids between the ages of 8 and 15 who are good at tossing a football and kicking it. |
The 2005 NFL Pass, Punt and Kick Competition will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Albany's Bleecker Stadium. The first round will be held at the field. The local finals will then take place at halftime of the Metro Mallers-Lake City Stars game on Sept. 24. The ultimate winners, chosen after several rounds of local and sectional competition, will demonstrate their talents at an NFL game.
The Metro Mallers, a semi-professional team, are sponsoring the competition along with the NFL, the NFL Players Association, and USA Football as part of Play Football Month.
Also, on Saturday at the same time, the Metro Mallers and All-American Sports Recreation invite kids from 6 to 14 to register for the 2005 season of the NFL-Flag Football League, which plays Saturday mornings at Albany's Hoffman Park.
