*4/28/18 Update. The Miami Dolphins, with the 229th pick in the 7th round of the 2018 NFL Draft, selected Jason Sanders!

Jason Sanders is NFL READY. Contact Jason’s NFLPA Agent Gil Scott, or Brent Grablachoff (Owner of Kicking World) at 512-817-1333 for more info. *2017 College Senior year update – Jason Sanders is the best kickoff kicker in College Football and one of the best field goal kickers around. He led all of college football (FBS-FCS-D2-D3-etc) on kickoffs for touchbacks % as a junior (going into last 2 game was at 89+% and finished at 83%). He did it again as a senior finishing up just over 81%. He finished up 111/112 college career PATs, and 81/85 (3 blocks) in High School. He hit a monster 53-yard game winning field goal during his collegiate senior season on 9-23-17. He’s played in some of the biggest venues including Kyle Field (99,000 in attendance on 11/11/17) at Texas A&M and has performed well and enjoyed the big game atmosphere. He has the leg to make 65-70 yard field goals and routinely hits kickoffs 70+ yards with 4.1-4.2 seconds hang-time. I’ve seen him kick many kickoffs over 4.4 seconds and distances up to 80 yards. His leg is freakish, but his ability to stay calm & poised is what impresses me the most. I believe NFL prospect Jason Sanders will not only make it into the NFL this year, but will thrive for many years to come.

*High School notes – Jason came into the 2013 season well known by the LA Times & OC Register as he was 2012 All-CIF Southern Section Punter and All-County & All-League Kicker. He connected on a 50 yard field goal as a Junior and did that again this year. He also set a school record with 4 field goals (45, 41, 32, 31) in one game. Jason Sanders already kicks field goals off the ground. He’s a D1 ready kicker who can also punt.
