NASHVILLE, Tenn. --** Tyler Enos of Chattanooga, Tenn. will represent the Tennessee Titans this weekend in the NFL PUNT, PASS & KICK National Finals on January 15, prior to the NFC Divisional Playoff Game in Atlanta. A special on-field award presentation will air after the third quarter of the game, which airs on FOX. 

Enos will compete in the boy's age 12/13 bracket and will attempt to become only the second youngster from Tennessee to ever win the NFL's national competition.  Ryan Garner of Dyer, TN was the 2006 National Champion in the 10/11 age group and is the only previous national winner from Tennessee. 

Finalists will compete separately in five age divisions in the Georgia Dome, with the top scorer in each group crowned national champion. All participants launch one punt, one pass and one kick, with scores based on distance and accuracy (in feet). All youngsters advanced to the National Finals through local, sectional and team championship competitions held throughout the NFL regular season. The top four scorers in each age group from around the country qualified as national finalists.

NFL Punt, Pass and Kick, which began in 1961, is the nation's largest grassroots sports skills competition.  NFL stars including Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterbacks TROY AIKMAN and DAN MARINO competed in the Punt, Pass and Kick program as youngsters.

"The NFL Punt, Pass and Kick program gives millions of girls and boys around the country a way to be active participants in the game of football," said NFL Senior Vice President of Events FRANK SUPOVITZ. "We are pleased to see so many of our young fans entering football through this program.

"All participants and their guest are provided airfare, hotel accommodations and tickets to the NFC Divisional Playoff Game.
