The 2016 Kicking World Invite-Only Showcase brought close to 50 of the country’s best prep kickers & punters from over 20 states to beautiful San Diego, CA on Saturday & Sunday, December 10-11, 2016. Kicking World’s top specialists were hand-picked by Coach Brent and the staff and out of the over 1,100 camp attendees from 2016, just under 100 were invited to this prestigious event. Showcase participants squared off for a weekend to showcase their talent and help legitimize their kicking and punting ability. Watch the 2016 Showcase Video Recruiting Recap.

To kickoff Day 2, we had renowned motivational speaker and former Navy SEAL Brent Gleeson (above photo) present a powerful presentation on accountability, perseverance and teamwork. It was truly inspiring.

On Day 2 we had ‘Elimination competitions’ meaning students had to hit a certain minimum criteria (i.e. distance and hang-time on kickoffs and punts) in order to advance to the next round. As the competition went on, more and more students were eliminated until finally we only had 1 student per class year. We then went until there was only 1 overall champion. Overall winners of Day 2 Elimination won some awesome prizes including XBox OneS, GoPro cameras, Beats Wireless Earphones, Wizard Ball Holders and multiple Kicking World apparel items. The overall champions for the Day 2 Elimination Competitions are as follows:
