NEWBERRY - The Newberry College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is pleased to announce its members will assist the City of Newberry, the Newberry County Touchdown Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes in the annual NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition at Setzler Field this weekend.

The event is slated to start at 9 a.m. this Saturday, September 13, at Newberry College’s Setzler Field. The competition, free and open to boys and girls ages 6 to 15, allows children to showcase their talents in punting, passing, and kicking with scores based on distance and accuracy. Participants will be grouped based on their ages. Age classification is as of Dec. 31 of the current year.

The top finishers from each of 10 age groups will advance to a section competition, with the winners from sectionals to compete to have their scores compared with other sectional champions.

“Having the young people of our community come to our campus and participate in Punt, Pass & Kick is fantastic,” said Newberry SAAC advisor Emily Bikowski. “The members of our committee are looking forward to meeting the kids and helping make sure they have a fantastic experience at Newberry College.”
