Prove Yourself!

In the world of kicking and punting, scholarships are earned, not given.  One of the easiest ways to earn that scholarship – prove yourself.  My advice, get yourself on the biggest stage – VEGAS.  Here are 12 players that have set themselves up for the ultimate exposure.  They did so by proving themselves in Vegas in January.  I can guarantee every college coach in America knows these names, and every college coach in America can’t wait to see them this summer at their summer kicking camps on campus.  Class of 2012 – You have a chance to earn this same honor May 14-15, 2011.   Need an example……. How about Carson Wiggs (Purdue).  He didn’t make the “TOP 12” in January, but came back to make the “Event Elite” in May.  Now he is hitting 67-yard FG’s in Spring Games.  Class of 2013, 2014, 2015 – Follow these players over the course of the next year.  See you this May and see you next January in Vegas!  Will you be next?  PROVE YOURSELF!

Anthony Says:The things that make me the best kicker in the country are my drive to always be the best, my leg strength, and my ability to stay cool under pressure. When my coach sends me in to make the game winning kick, my hard work both on and off the field pays off. I personally feel these attributes are very important for a kicker because everyone can make a field goal or kick the ball off in practice, but it’s a rare person who can perfect these skills in a game, I am that person”.
