WARM UP, WIND UP, AND LET IT FLY

Austin Fee wore no shirt, black football pants and mismatching shoes. Whatever.

The 13-year-old from Wesley Chapel had a slip-on checkerboard Van on his left foot and one of his brother's Adio skate shoes on his right and still he punted a football 75 feet, passed it 92 feet, 1 inch, and kicked it 86 feet, 3 inches, for a score of 253 feet, 4 inches, during Saturday's Wesley Chapel Vipers punt, pass and kick competition at the new Wesley Chapel District Park.

The overall winner, though - a late arrival - was Johnathan Coats, just 10, of Dade City, who edged out Fee by a total of 3 feet.

The other age-group winners were: Amanda Schwartz, 8; Jeffrey Hiner, 8; Cassidy Brockway, 10; Kelsey Bare, 12; and Alex Schwartz, 11. They're all Wesley Chapel kids. Some of the other top performers: Bailey Holland 11, of Tampa; Malik Sanders, 11, of Wesley Chapel; and Jordan Primus, 12, of Wesley Chapel.

Vipers secretary Tracey Roberts tallied the results under the blue tent by the concession trailer.

"I wonder how far I could kick it in cleats," Austin said.
