NEWBERRY — Over 60 competitors participated in this year’s Punt, Pass and Kick competition held Saturday at Setzler Field on the Newberry College campus.

Matt DeWitt, vice president of the Newberry County Touchdown Club, said it was a great opportunity to unite the community’s youth through football and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Groups included ages 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13 and 14-15. The competition was open for boys and girls.

Prior to the competition, Pastor Chad Ashby of College Street Baptist Church led a devotion.

The event is sponsored nationwide by the NFL. In the county, the event is sponsored by the city of Newberry Parks Recreation and Tourism Department, Newberry County Touchdown Club, Newberry College and the Newberry County Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

DeWitt said they could not have put on the event each year without the commitment and involvement of each of the groups involved.

“A big thank you to these organizations and to all the parents and participants who came out and made this third year for the return of NFL Punt, Pass and Kick in Newberry a huge success,” DeWitt said.
