Turlock Kids Advance in NFL Punt, Pass, Kick Competition

For the third year in a row, Medeiros Elementary School student Mya Sanchez, 8, will be on the field during halftime at an NFL football game.

This year Mya (first place) will be joined by fellow students Hailey Bacon (second place) and her brother Avery Bacon (second place), both in the 6-7 year old division. Mya won the San Francisco 49ers competition last year, and the Oakland Raiders competition the year before.

Last weekend the three students competed in the Sacramento sectional of the NFL Punt Pass and Kick competition, which included students from Turlock all the way to Yreka. The winners of the Sacramento section will compete against sectional winners from Utah, Nevada and the Bay Area.

The three Turlock students will be on the field during halftime of the Dec. 8 San Francisco 49ers game against the Seattle Seahawks.

PPK participants are split up into age groups and then allowed one punt, one pass and one placekick. The total distance of the combined three attempts is measured for a total score.

Each attempt is measured by distance and accuracy along a straight line. Any deviation from the line is subtracted from the straight distance, and measurements are made from where the ball first hits the ground. For example, if a participant throws the ball 100 feet down the line, and 30 feet to the right, the total score is 70 feet.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
