These 20 Kickers / Punters are clearly well deserving of the honor of being selected to attend the 2019 TOP 12 Camp. They should be commended on their accomplishments. I understand that many other tremendous kicking and punting specialists in attendance were also deserving and can state their case as to why they are deserving over the first 20 selected. In the end, these choices were made based on several factors and ultimately the decision of Chris Sailer.
