From the college exposure and recruiting standpoint, there is no need to evaluate or rank anyone who is a high school sophomore or younger. Kickers and punters are not done growing. They are not done getting physically stronger. They are not done developing their skills. And to be honest, a college coach, who does not know where he will be next year, does not care about how good any sophomore or freshman kicker is.
But, at our kicking camps, we come across young kickers and punters who perform exceptionally well compared to their peers. We want to share their performances and acknowledge their successes.

Carson Essad (’23) Kicker/Punter, Ohio
