CLASS OF 2014
ORANGE COUNTY, CA
Class of 2014 Kicker/Punter Jason Sanders kicked a 51 yard field goal in Villa Park’s win over Brea Olinda. Jason was All-Orange County as a junior and is making waves again as a senior with his strong kickoff leg and consistent field goal performance inside 55 yards. He can also punt. Jason is drawing a lot of interest from D1 schools and should earn a scholarship. Here’s his senior year mid-season highlight video. *UPDATE: On November 1st Jason connected on 4 field goals in one game! He hit (45, 41, 32, 21) in Villa Park HS’s win.
ORANGE COUNTY, CA
Class of 2014 Punter/Kicker Hunter Kelley of Edison HS in Huntington Beach, CA kicked a 50 yard field goal in their win over Fountain Valley. He has been consistently kicking deep touch backs on almost every kickoff. Hunter is a very good punter as well. He hits 60+ yard punts, 70+ yard kickoffs and 45 to 60 yard field goals in this practice workout video with no wind and here is his mid-season highlight video. Hunter is a D1 Punter/Kicker.
SAN MARCOS, CA
Class of 2014 Kicker/Punter Esteban Senteno kicked 3 field goals (50, 46, 27) and a 69 yard punt in #2 ranked Mission Hills HS’s win over #1 Oceanside HS. Esteban is a very good punter and has a strong kickoff leg and plenty of field goal range off the ground. Here’s this Lefty’s mid-season highlight video.
Class of 2014 Kicker/Punter John Coleman of Sparta HS in NJ is one of the most consistent kickers who have come through our camps over the last 4 years. He hasn’t had many big field goal opportunities this season, but certainly is ready should he be called on. He consistently puts his kickoff deep in the end zone and has a solid range on field goals from 55 yards and in. He is a scholarship level kicker that can also punt and he has the grades for Ivy League or prestigious D1 football/academic schools. Here’s his senior year mid-season highlight video.
CLEAR SPRINGS, TX
Eric Piccione was the first kicker at our camps to win the ‘Triple Threat Champion’ honors as he bested over 40 campers to win all 3 competitions at our 2013 Austin Kicking Camp – field goal (60 yard competition winning), punt, and kickoff events. He hasn’t had much in-game action this year for long field goal attempts, but we’ve seen him hit 65 yard field goals in person and he has a consistent range from 55 yards and in. He is one of the top kickoff specialists in Texas and his touch back ratio is some 75%+ with most of his kickoffs going 67-72+ yards with excellent hang-time. This lefty is a D1 level kicker and should be offered a scholarship. Watch his Senior year mid-season highlight video.
TJ Fitzsimmons booted a 43 and 41 yard field goal at Aloha Stadium in Kamehamaha’s win over St. Louis. TJ also had a 58 yard punt and 2 punts inside the 10. TJ has been a consistent combo guy as a junior and senior and is drawing interest from several D1 schools. Watch the 43 yarder and see his mid-season highlight video.
KANSAS CITY, KS
Class of 2014 Kicker Luciano Fasani converted an onside kick and then kicked a game-winning 29 yard field goal propelling Bonner Springs over Desoto. He also booted a 43 yard field goal the week before and had a 3 field goal game (43, 41, 21) the week prior to that! He’s having a good year! Here’s a highlight video of his performance at our 2013 Kansas City kicking camp.
CLASS OF 2015
Class of 2015 Kicker Jared Haynes kicked a 41 yard game-winning field goal to propel Hutto HS over Bastrop. Jared has been the starting varsity kicker for Hutto since his freshman season. He has a very strong leg and consistently makes 55+ yard field goals in practice and has even been seen by us kicking 65 yard field goals. He has a huge leg on both field goals and kickoffs. Watch his practice workout video.
Connor Flanigan of Bowie HS in Austin, TX kicked a game-winning 40 yard field goal earlier this year and kicks his field goals off the ground. He played JV as a sophomore and made 32/33 PATs and kicked 33% kickoffs for touchbacks. He’s an upperclassman with a lot of potential and we expect him to really turn it on over the next 2 years.
ST. LOUIS, MO
Zak McCrary of Ft. Zumwalt South HS in St. Peters, MO has an exceptional field goal and kickoff leg. He has been working really hard this season. He hasn’t had many in-game opportunities yet this year, but is one very good kicker with a college level leg. Watch his practice workout video.
LAS VEGAS, NV
Out of powerhouse Bishop Gorman HS in Las Vegas, NV Punter/Kicker Gage Wilson has blossomed into a dynamite punter. This year he set the school record with a 62 yard punt against Servite and continues to pin the opposing teams deep on punts. He shows a lot of promise on punts and also has a nice kickoff leg. Watch his junior year mid-season highlight video.
CLASS OF 2016
FORKED RIVER, NJ
Pat Davis is the starting Varsity kicker for Lacey Township HS in Lanoka Harbor, NJ. He consistently puts his kickoffs deep in the end zone and hits a beautiful field goal with good trajectory, lift and consistency; from 55 yards and in. He’s won multiple kickoff competitions at our camps and has been leading the shore kickers in scoring each week. He’s one of the top kickers in the state of NJ and will get early offers. Here are a few kicks from his freshman year and here is his mid-season highlight video which includes touch back kickoffs, field goals, extra points, tackles on kickoff and the 40 yard Field Goal that eventually won the game a few weeks ago (he cleared the kick by 15+ yards!) earning him Special Teams player of the week in the Shore Conference.
CLASS OF 2017
Justin Davidovicz is a very strong freshman out of Bridgewater Raritan HS in New Jersey who has the ability to hit 50 yard field goals, and make 45 yards and in consistently with the pressure on. He’s a few yards short of already kicking touchbacks as a freshman. He’s been a consistent performer at our camps and is certainly an underclassman to put on your radar. He’ll have video up at the end of this season, but for now, here is a nice field goal.
