MONROE - A free trip to Disney World and the chance to outdo the competition are the gifts 9-year-old MaKenna Schooff will receive for her birthday this year. Band music filled the Albrecht Elementary School as students decked out in football jerseys cheered on Schooff, who sat toward the front of the room Wednesday hesitantly basking in their admiration. Set to turn 10 on Saturday, she was scheduled to depart today for Orlando to take part in the National Football League Punt, Pass and Kick competition for the first time on a national level.
