SJSO Presents Punt, Pass & Kick

Sheriff Mike Tregre and several of his officers had a great time with a group of kids Saturday June 15, 2024 when the St. John Sheriff’s Office presented the third annual Punt, Pass and Kick competition at Joe Keller Stadium in Reserve. The event was held as part of the department’s community outreach program.
Boys and girls ages 6-13 registered for the free event. Led by several officers, the children had fun learning the fundamentals of football. Children also enjoyed snowballs, pizza and drinks during breaks.
LSU football punter, Peyton Todd also came out and joined the fun with the children.
At the event, children received a SJSO goodie bag filled with a personalized Punt, Pass & Kick picture and other treats.
Sheriff Mike Tregre encourages his officers to participate in community outreach projects such as Punt, Pass and Kick to connect with kids. Many officers were happy to volunteer to assist with the event.
