UPDATE: On 8/4/19 Jared dominated a field of 30 very talented kickers winning the Golden Boot with a 60 yard field goal and kickoff competition with several kicks with big hang times over 4.15-4.25 seconds. On 6/12/19 Georgia offered Jared Zirkel and he verbally committed. Early June 2019 Jared won both UGA and UTSA kickoff competitions with impressive distance and hang times in the range of 75 / 4.2, with even a couple absolute bombs in the 4.4 range – which is better than many kickers in the NFL. On 4/23/19 Jared hit a 70 yard FG off the crossbar during a private lesson. Jared had a dominating kickoff performance at our 2018 National Showcase besting the entire field of 61 and winning both days’ charting and elimination events with multiple kickoffs over 80 yards and 4.0+ seconds, with a whopping average of 75.2 yards / 3.9 seconds. He also finished tied as runner-up on Day 2 FG hitting a 60 yarder during the double-elimination competition and making it to the final 3. Jared is 1 of 11 2018 All-Americans, making AA Punter and Hon Mention Kicker pinning 18 of 44 punts inside the 20. On 9/7/18 Jared kicked a 59 yard FG in game and was also 9/9 kickoffs for touchbacks in their dominating win. As a Freshman Jared was kicking 55+ yard field goals and kickoffs in the end zone! He’s now 6’3, stronger, and is absolutely crushing automatic touchbacks. He’s performed well at each of our events and was the youngest prospect added to our List at that time. He now kicks his field goals off the ground and gets tremendous power with the ability to hit 68 yards. He has perhaps the strongest leg in the country. August 12, 2018 he won all 3 events at our Austin event against 30 kids from across TX. Jared won the Texas A&M kickoff competition (74 / 4.2 KO), and KW Dallas FG Competition in July. June 17-18, 2017 he was hitting kickoffs 70+ yards, 3.9 seconds and even hit an 80-yard kickoff. 2017 Showcase – Jared was #1 overall on kickoffs hitting one at 70 yards, 3.92 seconds; with brand new balls. Kickoff wise, he can easily beat the majority of current FBS kickers. Freakish leg strength. SCHOLARSHIP WORTHY KICKER who can also punt well.
