Youngsters tried out for the NFL Gatorade Punt, Pass and Kick Saturday afternoon in Abilene.
The local tryouts were held at Rose Park at the corner of Barrow and South 7th Street. Kids were competing to make it nationals. Those who win locally go on to compete in the sectionals at McMurry University in October.
From there, if they win in the top four ranking spots for North Texas and Oklahoma, they go on to compete in the team championship at the Cowboy's Stadium in Dallas and go on to nationals.
As an added bonus, competitors get to perform in an exhibition a few hours before the championship game.
