Christian has a big leg. At our July 2020 event in Houston he won the FG competition with a 60 YARDER. Since that event he’s made good strides in his form smoothness and looks much more polished and shows a D1 level FG/KO Leg strength, and with some refinements on overall consistency could play at between a D2-D1 level. He can punt decently too.

In mid-November he drove 3 hours from Houston to Austin to train with me over 2 days. He charted a perfect 45/45 on field goals from 35-55 yards over the two 1.5 hour sessions in 2 days. He hits kickoffs routinely 65-70 yards with 3.9-4.1 second hand times and has a consistent FG range from 50 and in with the leg strength to hit a 65 yarder with some wind help. Christian comes from a very athletic family and he’s currently 6’2 / 180 and still growing.

2020 National Showcase Update (12/6/20)
While Christian didn’t have a great showing at our National event, as he under-cut several kickoffs, we have seen him perform very well recently at camp and at lessons. With improvement on overall consistency, because of his big leg, he should be a solid D2 level recruit. He will need to invest a lot of time & focus on fundamentals/technique and becoming more consistent overall.
