It's been a great weekend for Cam Abderhalden.
Friday night, the 15-year-old threw two touchdown passes, including the game-winner with a little more than 3 minutes left, in Lee High School's 13-12 victory over Monument Mountain.
He followed that Sunday with an NFL Punt, Pass and Kick team championship.
Abderhalden, a sophomore at Lenox Memorial High School, won the New England Patriots team championship for the 14/15-year-old Boys division at Gillette Stadium on Sunday morning.
"It's kind of unexpected," Abderhalden said. "I didn't think I was going to make it to Gillette, never mind winning there.
"To know I'm the top competitor in all of New England ... I don't know how to really describe it."
According to Abderhalden, he won with a score of 298 feet, with approximate distances of 130 feet for his throw, 120 feet for his kick and 47 feet for his punt.
"They put a tape measure [down] and stretch it straight. You have to punt, throw and kick as far as you can," he said. "They also [measure] accuracy.
"My first punt, I had a score of 47 feet, which was really bad. I was behind by a lot. The throwing and kicking made up for it."
If Abderhalden's score is one of the four highest in his division from all 32 Team Championship competitions, he will advance to the Punt, Pass & Kick National Championships. That event will be held at a yet-to-be-determined NFL playoff game in January.
He won't know if he's made it, though, until mid-December. The Patriots Team Championship was the first of the 32 championships, with the last nine taking place Sunday, Dec. 15.
Abderhalden, who also plays basketball for Lenox and lacrosse for Lee, won a county competition at Taconic High School and a sectional competition in Westfield to qualify for the Patriots Team Championship. He, along with parents Chris and Dina, woke early Sunday morning to travel to Foxborough for the 9:30 a.m. competition.
Former Patriot Andre Tippett presented the trophies at halftime of New England's come-from-behind 27-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, a game Abderhalden and his parents got to see Sunday.
Abderhalden had been preparing all week -- not only for the Punt, Pass & Kick competition, but also for Friday's game against Monument Mountain. The quarterback doesn't handle any kicking duties for the Wildcats, but he got in some work Saturday with Lee kicker/punter John Graziano.
"The kick [went] actually surprisingly well, too," Abderhalden said. "But the throw was the best."
