Hinton Iowa Teen NFL PPK Champ
If you were watching the Atlanta Vs. Seattle NFC playoff game on Sunday, January 13th you may have seen a kid from the area on national TV. He is Jay Small and he’s from Hinton, Iowa. On Sunday, he won the national title among boys in his age group at the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick National Finals at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Then Jay joined the other champs for an on-field presentation during the game live on TV.
According to The Le Mars Daily Sentinel, Jay has had success in the Punt Pass and Kick competition before.
“This is Jay’s second time making it to the national level. In 2009-10, as an 11 year old, he advanced to the PPK National Finals at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium and he placed second in the nation.” – The Le Mars Daily Sentinel
Jay says that he got involved in PPK several years ago. “I had competed in a parks department competition and after that I looked into the NFL program so that I could compete at a high level.”
