Pulling up to the gates of One Buc Place in Tampa can be inspiring. The giant logo along Martin Luther King drive points you in the direction of the iron gates and the two-story glass football that becomes a popular photo spot. Even the few who weren’t Buccaneers fans in our party had to admit it was pretty cool.

The awesomeness wasn’t the main attraction for more than 50 kids between 6 and 15 who were invited guests to the training and practice facility of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They had a purpose and a mission. Inside the main gate, but not yet inside the grassy areas of the practice fields, these youngsters were throwing and kicking footballs in the parking lot. They were warming up. They were the local winners of the NFL’s Punt, Pass and Kick competition.
