The pressure was on. A free Ford F-150 was on the line. And Steve Burgess 35+ yard kick for the truck landed…just a bit short of the uprights. But still it was an admirable effort for Week IV of The Dahlonega Nugget’s Punt for a Pickup challenge.
Check out the footage on The Nugget’s Facebook page right here. And remember to show up at final home game on October 31st for the chance to cheer on the Indians and Punt for a Pickup!
(At each home game one lucky fan will be picked at random from the crowd and given the chance to kick a football from the 25 yard line into the tailgate of the truck. If the ball stays, the truck is yours! A portion of the proceeds for Punt for a Pickup go to the LCHS football and band programs thanks to our sponsors Chestatee Ford, Chestatee Regional Hospital, Stringer Insurance, the law office of J. Douglas Parks P.C., B&M Metals, Knepper Heating and Air Conditioning, Fresh N Frugal and The Atlanta Vision Clinic.)
