Cam Fox dreams of playing in the NFL. He loves Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen. And he also likes the Packers, as well.

The 4th grader from Deer River has been tossing the football around since he was in diapers.

So it’s no surprise he put his skills to the test, and is headed to the national Punt, Pass, Kick competition in Tampa. He placed first in Baraboo, Wisconsin, to qualify.

“I feel good, I feel confident,” he told us. He practices all of the time, and even enlisted help from the JV coach in Deer River.

His mom, Christina, told us he’s the only Minnesotan heading down to the competition. “I’m really proud of him, and it’s amazing to see him doing something he loves,” she said.

There is a GoFundMe to help Cam pay for his trip to the competition.
