Alex Burd Wins Steelers Punt, Pass & Kick Competition In Pittsburgh Sunday

Burd Wins Steelers PPK
Team Championship


Coudersport student Alex Burd, seven-year-old son of David and Wendy Burd, won the 6/7 Age Division of the Steelers Punt, Pass & Kick Competition in Pittsburgh on Sunday, November 21st.

Alex participated in an exhibition before and at half-time of the Steelers – Raiders game with his image appearing on the scoreboard as he was recognized with the other age division winners.

To even qualify for this event, Alex had to win the local competition in Coudersport on September 11th and a Sectional Competition in Titusville on October 9th.


To become eligible for the Team Championship, Alex not only had to win his Sectional Competition, he had to be one of the top four winners from all eight Steeler Sectional Competitions.

While Alex’s total score of 145 feet, 4 inches was more than enough to make him the Team winner in that age division it was less than his 152 feet, 1 inch score from our local competition.

To go on to the national contest, Alex’s score must be one of the top four from all 32 NFL Team Championships. Unfortunately, Alex’s score currently is listed as fifth in his age division for the teams that have completed their competitions to date.

While this will be the end of his competition this year, he may continue to compete in this program until he reaches age 15. Alex also has the distinction of going on further than anyone else who has competed in this competition from the Coudersport contest. Alex was the fourth local student to go onto a Team competition but the first one to win a Team Championship.


The Knights of Columbus and the Coudersport Falcon Football team, sponsors of the local event, congratulate Alex for all of his accomplishments as the current Pittsburgh Steelers 6/7 Age Division Team Champion.

We look forward to seeing him and all of our young athletes at our local competition next September.

Nope not a Bills fan, just a fan of the ethical human race which I have found Steelers fans are not anymore. Saluting someone like Ben Roethlisberger? Come on, lets let this be about Alex...
