Peyton Kemmerlin, a rising sixth grader at Landrum Middle School, recently won the opportunity to go to Canton, Ohio, and compete at The Hall of Fame Stadium in July to be the nation’s top sixth-grade quarterback. Kemmerlin attended Darin Slacks National Football Academy in Charlotte, N.C., in a three-day competition that included youth from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.  He was one of two kids invited to the national finals from the fifth-eighth graders.
