Punt Pass Kick – Entry Form and Release of Liability

EL PASO, Texas – The 2018 Peter Piper Pizza Sun Bowl Punt, Pass & Kick is set for, Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 4:30 p.m. (MT) in Sun Bowl Stadium on the UTEP campus. The free event is open to youth in and around the Borderland.

Girls and boys in five separate age divisions (listed below) compete against each other in punting, passing and place kicking. Those interested in participating for this free event must register at any Peter Piper Pizza location in El Paso beginning September 11 through September 30.

All participants must bring their birth certificate and a signed parental waiver form (see below) to the stadium, and no cleats are allowed during the competition. If there are any questions or concerns about the competition, please call Jay Pritchard of the Sun Bowl Association at 915-533-4416.

“Since the NFL is no longer sponsoring this event, we will not be sending anyone to a Cowboy game but we will honor the winners at the FirstLight Federal Credit Union Parade and the Hyundai Sun Bowl,” said Bernie Olivas, Executive Director of the Sun Bowl Association. “We know and understand that the people of El Paso love football and this is an exciting opportunity for them to compete against other kids in the city.”

Registration forms can be found at all Peter Piper Pizza locations in El Paso and all participants must submit a signed parental waiver form at check-in on the day of the event as well. Parental waivers can be printed from the Sun Bowl Association website (www.sunbowl.org) or can be filled out on that day before the competition at Sun Bowl Stadium.

“We want to give back to the community, so we are partnering with the Sun Bowl Association for this wonderful event,” said Howard Smith, Vice President of Marketing for Peter Piper Pizza.

The first 500 participants to check-in on the day of the event will receive a free t-shirt (sizes are limited) and a water bottle. Price’s Creamy will provide refreshments for the participants.

After the competition is completed and the scores are totaled, the Sun Bowl Association will hand out first, second and third place medals to the top three finishers in each of the boys’ and girls’ divisions from the five age brackets. The first-place finisher in each of the boys’ and girls’ division from the five age brackets will be recognized at the FirstLight Federal Credit Union Sun Bowl Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 22, 2018. Those first-place finishers will also receive two End Zone section tickets to the 85th Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl, which is scheduled for Dec. 31, 2018 at noon (MT).
