Tyra Meets Brett Favre

I have been competing in Punt, Pass and Kick ever since I was eight years old. I have gone to the Team Championship every year and have won it three times. I have come close to making it to Nationals twice before making it this year as a 13 year old. Even though I was placed second at the Nationals, I recorded my personal best score at this competition, so I wasn't too disappointed. Plus, my brother Kyle went when he was nine and was also a runner-up. My best memory from my PPK experienc

I have been competing in Punt, Pass and Kick ever since I was eight years old. I have gone to the Team Championship every year and have won it three times. I have come close to making it to Nationals twice before making it this year as a 13 year old.


Even though I was placed second at the Nationals, I recorded my personal best score at this competition, so I wasn't too disappointed. Plus, my brother Kyle went when he was nine and was also a runner-up.


My best memory from my PPK experience is when I met my idol Brett Favre. I am a big Packers fan. When I was competing at the Rams' game two years ago, they were competing against the Packers. I always compete in my bright gold Favre jersey. That competition I shanked my kick and was very disappointed that I did not win.


However, my disappointment soon turned to excitement when Brett walked over to me and asked if he could sign my jersey. He got down on one knee and signed the back and then continued to talk to me. I thought that was so amazing for an athlete like him to take time out of his warm-ups before a game to talk to me. I will always cherish that special memory!

THE ONE TO STOP

THE ONE TO STOP My name is Jordan and I just turned 9 this past September. This year my parents finally said ok to me playing football. I never saw myself as a girl playing football.
