Eagles Fan Cory Bachstein Attempted $20,000 Kick as Part of the “Santander Field Goal Challenge”

Roxborough, Pa. Resident Narrowly Missed 30-Yard Field Goal
during h
alftime of the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Game

Philadelphia, PA – Roxborough, Pa. resident Cory Bachstein made his kicking debut on Lincoln Financial Field during halftime at today’s Philadelphia Eagles game, attempting a 30-yard field goal in the “Santander Field Goal Challenge.”

Bachstein was poised to win a $10,000 cash prize and an additional $10,000 donation to Pennsbury High School, the regional school he selected, courtesy of Santander Bank. Bachstein attended Pennsbury High School and played soccer there, honing his kicking skills that helped him win the finalist spot at the competition tryouts in November. Although Bachstein was just shy of the goal posts and missed the grand prize, he was rewarded for his efforts and was presented a $2,500 prize, as well as a $2,500 donation to Pennsbury High School. Bachstein plans to direct the donation towards the school’s athletic programs to benefit student athletes.

“I was born and raised in an Eagles family so getting the chance to stand on the field where the team plays was awesome,” said Bachstein. “I trained hard and gave it my best shot and while I wish the football had gone through the goal posts, it has still been an incredible experience. I can’t thank Santander enough for this amazing opportunity. I’m getting married this coming year so the prize money will go towards our honeymoon.”

To participate in the third annual “Santander Field Goal Challenge,” Eagles fans were invited to enter the Bank’s daily online contest for a chance at one of 40 spots in the Santander Field Goal Challenge Tryouts, which were held at the Eagles’ NovaCare Complex training facility on November 15th. With some pointers from Eagles kicker Caleb Sturgis, Bachstein outkicked the other contestants to advance to today’s final kick. Santander’s Chief Marketing Officer Doug Kalish, Managing Director and Head of Corporate and Commercial Banking Cameron Letters and Regional Executive Director of Corporate and Commercial Banking David Swoyer joined Bachstein on the field to present him two $2,500 checks.

“At Santander, we’re committed to giving back to the communities where we do business and the ‘Santander Field Goal Challenge’ is a great way to interact with some remarkable Eagles fans and support a local school,” said Kalish. “I want to thank all of our talented contestants this year and congratulate Cory for winning the opportunity to kick a field goal at today’s game. He was a great competitor and we’re pleased to present the two $2,500 prizes to Cory and Pennsbury High School.”

Santander, which operates 160 branches in Pennsylvania, is the Official Bank of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Win $10,000 Cash Prize and Secure Another $10,000 for Local School of Their Choice

Philadelphia, PASantander Bank, N.A. today announced the return of the “Santander Field Goal Challenge” for the third consecutive year. The popular promotion provides Philadelphia Eagles fans with a chance to win the once-in-a-lifetime experience of kicking a field goal at a National Football League stadium.

Now through October 31, 2016, Eagles fans are invited to enter to win a chance to attempt a 30-yard field goal during halftime of the Eagles home game on December 11th. A successful conversion will result in a $10,000 prize for the winner. An additional $10,000 will be donated to the regional K-12 school of the winner’s choice, courtesy of Santander, the Official Bank of the Philadelphia Eagles.

“The ‘Santander Field Goal Challenge’gives us the chance to give back to the local community, while promoting education and connecting with the Eagles passionate fan base,” said Angela Moultrie, Santander region president for the Pennsylvania/New Jersey Central regions. “We know how much Eagles fans like this contest and look forward to the game in December when one lucky Eagles fan will get the chance to win big for themselves and the school of their choice.”

Fans can enter the “Santander Field Goal Challenge” at www.philadelphiaeagles.com/santander, with one contestant selected per day throughout the duration of the contest. All winning contestants will participate in the “Santander Field Goal Challenge Tryouts” at the Eagles NovaCare Complex training facility the week of November 14th, where contestants will go head-to-head in a series of field goal attempts until one finalist remains. The finalist will take the field on December 11th to attempt a 30-yard field goal. Another six weekly winners will take home a signed 2016 Eagles jersey.

“As an Eagles fan, walking onto the field and converting a kick in front of 70,000 people was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and winning big for my school was amazing,” said last year’s winner, Thomas Voelker, who took his family to Disney World with his personal prize and used the $10,000 school donation to support STEM programming at Brandywine Heights Middle School. “As a school administrator, I know firsthand how significant a $10,000 donation can be for a school and I commend Santander for offering Eagles fans the chance to live out the ultimate fantasy and support a local school in the process.”
