Punt, Pass and Kick

Jay Vanderjagt- 10 year division awaiting national results

The 5th annual Punt, Pass and Kick program of 2010 was the most successful so far for the City of Marco Island’s Parks and Recreation Department.   The PPK is a national competition combining the scores of one kick, one punt and one pass.   Winners with the highest combined total then advance onto the next competition.  All of our local winners went to the Miami Dolphins training facility and went against other winners in the southeast.  From there, three of the Marco Island youth went onto the team championship which was held December 5th at the Dolphin Stadium.

One of those entrants (Jay Vanderjagt) won that division and he is now awaiting national results to see if he will go to nationals. Greg Tryzna, Cody Young, Jason Lang and Sierra Prange received trophies at a recent City Council meeting.
