*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 is doing it again this year as a senior. He hit a monster 53-yard game winning field goal his senior season 0n 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 Jason will not only make it into the NFL next 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 already kicks field goals off the ground. He’s a D1 ready kicker who can also punt.
