SATURDAY, JANUARY 12TH: FLORIDA'S JOHN LATIMER TO REPRESENT

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS IN PUNT, PASS & KICK NATIONAL FINALS

PPK logo John Latimer, (9), from Orlando, FL., will represent the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as one of 40 young football players from around the country competing in the NFL Punt, Pass and Kick National Finals. Athletes from 25 states will take part in the competition on Saturday, January 12th in Atlanta during the weekend of the NFL Divisional Playoffs. A special on-field award presentation will air during the Atlanta Falcons-Seattle Seahawks NFC Divisional Playoff on Sunday, January 13th on FOX. The game kicks off at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Finalists will compete separately in five age divisions at the Falcons' team facility, with the top scorer in each group crowned national champion. All participants launch two punts, two passes and two kicks, with scores based on distance and accuracy (in feet). The best score from each activity is tabulated to determine the athlete's total. All youngsters advanced to the national finals through local, sectional, and team championship competitions held throughout the NFL regular season. As one of the top four scorers in his age group from across the country, Latimer qualified as a national finalist for the Boys 8-9 division. NFL Punt, Pass & Kick, which began in 1961, is celebrating its 51st anniversary. It is the nation's largest grassroots sports skills competition. NFL Punt, Pass and Kick is part of NFL Youth Football, which provides ways for children to play, watch and experience the game of football. For more information, visit www.NFLPPK.com.
