More than 50 area youth participated in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition hosted by the Vermillion Youth Football Association on Sept. 26 in the DakotaDome. The first place winners in each age division advanced to the sectional competition held in Sioux Falls.
Organizers of the event thank everyone who came out and helped with the competition. Without their help, it wouldn't have been possible for the young people to participate.
It is hoped that more youth will participate in next year's Punt, Pass & Kick event.
