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.
