Punting, Passing & Kicking With The Best of 'Em

Sunday Afternoon the Dallas Cowboys generated plenty of excitement in their win over Washington, but just before game time, one five-foot-tall East Texan created her on buzz in the Punt, Pass and Kick contest.

At Texas Stadium on Sunday, 11-year-old Abby Halbrook, a student at Moore Magnet Middle School in Tyler, won first place in her age group.

This was Abby's third year to compete, but her first to win it all. Now she has a shot at the national Punt, Pass and Kick competition.

"Going into the Cowboys game, Abby was actually third and she actually beat out two girls that were ahead of her," said her coach, Dyann Kemp. "When they do their punt, pass and kick it has to be down the line. Abby was very accurate in her kicks."

When asked if Abby had any tips for the Cowboys punter Matt McBriar she grinned and said, "don't throw the ball up before you kick it and point your toe."

The top four finishers in the country in each age group move on to nationals. We will find out who the finalist are next month.
