First-place winners in the Maben Lions Club NFL Punt, Pass and Kick competition on Sept. 28 were Jada Booker, 8-9 girls; Carson Norwood, 8-9 boys; Kaleb Parish, 10-11 boys; Raven Cherry, 10-11 girls; Jensen Reed, 14-15 girls; Caziah Cooper, 12-13 boys; and Leis Parish, 12-13 girls.

These winners were invited to compete in the sectional Punt, Pass and Kick competition in Tupelo on Oct. 27. All contestants from the Maben contest wore the blue “winners” T-shirt that they won in the local contest. The blue shirts stood out as the six Maben participants competed in their respective age groups. The Maben contest winners were successful in bringing home three first-place medals, two second-place medals and one third-place medal from the sectional competition.

Scores from this sectional contest will be compared to other sectional scores in this area and the top five scorers will compete in New Orleans at one of the Saints NFL football games for the chance to compete at the Super Bowl game for the overall winner in each age group.
