The City of Pittsfield is proud to announce that two local youth who participated in both the city’s NFL Punt, Pass & Kick Competition and the Sectional Competition hosted by the City of Westfield, will advance to the New England Patriots Team Championship at Gillette Stadium Sunday, Dec. 4.
Evan Roccabruna will compete in the 6-7 year old age group and Jaden Keefner will compete in the 12-13 year old age category.
Evan just completed his first year of tackle football where he played quarterback/linebacker for the Pittsfield Saints. In addition to football, he excels in basketball and baseball. Evan’s dream is to meet Tom Brady and go to a New England Patriots game; through this competition, at least part of his dream will come true when he arrives at Gillette Stadium.
Jaden just helped his football team The Pittsfield Bulldogs win the youth football super bowl and is a three-time super bowl champion. This will be Jaden’s second year in a row making a trip to the New England Patriots Team Championship. Jaden was the 2015 New England Patriots 10-11 year old Team Champion, and was ranked in the top 32 in the country.
The City of Pittsfield is very proud of Evan and Jaden and wish them all the best in the upcoming competition.
