Hinsdale's Luke Adams was honored on national television for the second time in three years after he once again finished first nationally in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition, held this year in Denver.
Adams, 9, won the 8- to 9-year-old division this year after winning the 6- to 7-year-old division two years ago. He punted, passed and kicked a combine 287.11 feet, beating out the second-place finisher by nearly 9 feet and the third-place finisher by more than 13 feet.
The third-grader covered 223 feet during his first-place finish two years ago. Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey made a surprise visit to Madison School to congratulate Adams after his first title.
