A Plainview youngster was one of 40 athletes from across tthe country who competed in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick National Finals in Denver during the AFC Divisional Playoff game Jan. 11.
Representing the New York Jets, Sebastian Lippman, 8, launched two punts, passes and kicks as he attempted to score on distance and accuracy. The second-grader from Pasadena Elementary School put on an impressive display, but ultimately came up short in the competition, finishing in fourth place.
But with punts, passes and kicks in excess of more than 100 feet, Lippman represented his team with skill and heart — and he vows to return next year and give it another shot.
It was not a total loss for Lippman, as the youngster enjoyed free tickets to the game between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers.

Due to what appears to be a colossal error on the part of the Nassau County Assessor’s office, military veterans and Gold Star families will have to wait for their tax break until next year.
Plainview is one of several local school districts that recently approved resolutions extending an exemption to local veterans, even though budgets and Albany’s tax cap make it a tough choice. Last month, despite concerns about lack of confidence in the validity of eligibility information provided by the county assessor’s office, the Plainview trustees voted to provide a school tax exemption for veterans living in the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District, starting with the 2014-2015 school year.
