Chris Sailer Kicking “Event Elite” Punter Alex Kinney Commits to Colorado!

Chris Sailer Kicking “Event Elite” Punter / Kicker Alex Kinney has officially committed to the University of Colorado.  The #3 Punter in the nation & #22 Kicker in the nation made his decision last night.  The offer and commitment is well deserved!  The University of Colorado is getting one of very best, if not the best.

We met Alex in January at the 12th Annual National Kicking Event in Las Vegas.  He did a great job and landed in the Top 25 both as a punter and kicker.  He showed huge potential.  He then came back to Las Vegas in May for the 12th Annual National Spring Event where he absolutely exploded on the scene.  He kicked very well, but punting is where he really excelled.  He won the Class of 2015 Punt Competition and landed at #3 in the nation.  He also made “Event Elite” and was invited to the “TOP 12” and “Event Elite” camp in June where the best of the best gather and compete.

Alex had another great performance at the “TOP 12” and “Event Elite” Camp.  The 40 best specialists in the world gathered in Los Angeles to compete.  Kinney once again came out on top of the punting competition, beating the likes of Tommy Townsend (Tennessee commit), Blake Johnson (Duke, Oregon State & Colorado offers), & Corey Fatony (Missouri commit) to name a few.  Once the news got out,  it was no surprise that Colorado came in with the offer.

Alex is a special athlete.  Look for him to have an outstanding career at Colorado in the Pac-12.  A bright future awaits.
