all american kickers

The 2021 Kicking World All-America Team is comprised of the best HS and College kickers and punters in the country. This year's All-America Team includes kickers & punters from 10 states. These are the BEST kickers/punters for 2020.

On Thursday, February 3, 2022, Coach Brent Grablachoff announced the 2021 Kicking World All-America Team, celebrating the best high school kickers in the country for the 2021 football season. Our 2021 All-America Team is comprised of 14 students from Class Years 2022 (Seniors), 2023 (Juniors), and 2024 (Sophomores) representing 7 states – Texas (6), Ohio (2), Oklahoma (2), Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Washington. There were so many awesome performances in the 2021 football season with many students’ teams making it deep into the playoffs. It’s always a tall order selecting the best of the best for our annual All-America Team, but after watching highlight videos and from our thorough evaluations over the last few weeks, we feel very confident these are the best of the best for the 2021 HS football season.

We are proud of all our students who have trained with us and have been a part of Kicking World over the years. We look forward to seeing everyone during the 2022 Kicking World camp season, which starts in March! View this year’s All-America Team in a list/table view and read below for full details on each 2021 Kicking World All-American.

2021 KICKING WORLD ALL-AMERICA TEAM

Kickers

Mark Sayegh – Westlake HS, Texas (Senior)

  • 124/126 PATs
  • 2/2 FGs

Finished #1 in the Nation for points by kicking (133 total points) as per MaxPreps. This season he won his 3rd consecutive state championship with powerhouse Westlake HS. Mark finished with the 2nd most career PATs in all of Texas HS Football history as per Dave Campbell’s Texas Football. Mark was 1 of only 85 football players in the state of Texas who made the Academic All-State Elite Team with a whopping 1480 SAT, 34 ACT and 4.15 GPA. He has been accepted into every college he’s applied to and hopes to land a walk-on opportunity at a big D1 program in/around Texas.

Mason Johnson – Rouse HS, Texas (Senior)

  • 82/83 PATs
  • 7/7 FGs with a long of 42 yards

This reliable Central Texas kicker broke his school record for most PATs in a game (went 9/9). He recorded 5 tackles and a fumble recovery and was named 2nd Team All-District. Masson hopes to land a college home and continue his kicking career.

Nick Volpone – Ridley HS, Pennsylvania (Senior)

  • 74/75 PATs
  • 4/6 FGs with a long of 41 yards

The ‘Steak & Cheese’ boy (inside joke from camp) amassed an impressive PAT streak of 66 consecutive made kicks this season, finishing with 74/75 for a near-perfect year. He broke the school record for most PATs in a single game (went 10/10). Nick also had 2 game-winning kicks that helped propel Ridley deep into the playoffs. This talented placekicker is looking for a college home.

Hayden Arnold – Vandegrift HS, Texas (Junior)

  • 76/76 PATs
  • 7/8 FGs with a long of 46 yards

The Jr. from powerhouse Vandegrift HS has shown a lot of improvement from his sophomore year to junior year and we expect him to have a strong senior season next year. Hayden earned 1st Team All-District kicker in a very competitive 6A conference as he showed consistency going perfect on PATs all season long.

Walker Wright – Dripping Springs HS, Texas (Junior)

  • 70/70 PATs
  • 6/6 FGs with a long of 38 yards

The 6’3″ Kicker/Punter finished 1st in his district for points by kicking, and earned 1st Team All-District and 1st Team Academic All-District honors. He also finished first in his 5A conference in punt yards and hit a 57 yard long punt. Walker has been improving immensely on his punting and could be a top-notch combo recruit.

Honorable Mention (Kickers)

Tony Sterner – Kingwood Park HS, Texas (Senior)

  • 31 PATs
  • 9/12 FGs with a long of 48 yards

Tony’s (3) field goal misses came from 49, 46, and 44 yards. He made 4 field goals over 40 yards. The big-legged Senior kicker put over half of his kickoffs (27/49) deep for touchbacks. He’s still looking to land his college home and has been garnering significant interest since the 2021 National Showcase mostly due to his strong kickoff leg (he has been recorded hitting 80+ yard kickoffs). Tony made 1st Team All-District Kicker and 1st Team All-District Punter honors. He is a great pickup for any FBS/FCS program needing a kickoff weapon.

Cameron Pope – Eastmont HS, Washington (Senior)

  • 40/42 PATs
  • 8/12 FGs with a long of 45 yards

Cameron put 41 of his 61 (67%) kickoffs deep for touchbacks this season. I look at Cameron as a ‘Mr. Reliable’ as virtually every camp he’s attended with us he’s won a field goal event. He’s a true combo recruit and college-ready. Cameron was also was named as a KW All-American Punter this season.

Ethan McBee – Poteau HS, Oklahoma (Sophomore)

  • 69/71 PATs
  • 3/3 FGs

This under-classman kicker managed to put nearly 25% of his kickoffs in the end zone. Ethan shows a lot of promise and has been one of our most improved & committed students the last few years. He does extremely well under pressure and as he continues to grow he should evolve into a dominant kicking recruit.

Hunter Martens – Broken Arrow HS, Oklahoma (Sophomore)

  • 56/57 PATs
  • 7/7 FGs

A near-perfect statistical season with only 1 miss from an under-classman. Hunter showed growth as a kicker since attending our camp early last spring.

He is getting heavily looked at by D3 programs in/around the Carolinas and hopes to make his commitment soon to punt and/or kick in college.
