Seven-year old Elly Evarts, a second-grader at Hilfiker Elementary School in Gibsonburg, is not only an NFL Punt, Pass, & Kick champion — she is nearly the all-time overall national record holder.

Evarts’ total of 151 feet fell just short of the record 154 feet, six inches, but she and her family were all smiles when they returned from Orlando, Florida’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Evarts qualified by winning her age group (6-7) at local competitions in Fremont and Tiffin and then won the state competition in Cleveland. Her distance in Fremont was 133 feet and in Cleveland was 137 feet.
