The fifth-graders of Pulaski Road Elementary School were recently challenged to the ultimate face-off by News 12 Anchor Kevin Maher—a paper football tournament.

Each year, Kevin challenges a different school to provide a paper football champion for him to challenge. After the fifth-graders faced off with each other, the champion emerged: Carmine Montanino.

Kevin talked a big game, posting a Facebook video where he smack-talked the fifth-graders the week before the tournament. The students of Pulaski sent a rebuttal, claiming that they would be the victors—and, in the utmost mature manner possible, indicated that they ruled and Kevin drooled.

On the day of the tournament, students came to school decked out in Northport gear and pumped with energy. Forming a tunnel for the two opponents to run through, Carmine’s peers cheered wildly for him as he approached the football table, followed by the Northport Tiger—but Kevin wasn’t as popular with the crowd.

Though the competition was fierce, and the game was close, Carmine came out victorious, scoring a whopping 41 points to Kevin’s 31. The crowd went wild for their classmate, and Kevin sulked in defeat.

Carmine was named the tournament champ, and Kevin, the tournament chump—better luck next year!
