Walk-On vs. Preferred Walk-On, What’s the Difference?

In the wide, wide world of College Recruiting, two terms are tossed around quite a bit–the concept of being a walk-on versus being a preferred walk-on. There is an important difference between the two, so we will explore that variance here.

First, the preferred walk-on is most desirable because it means you, as the recruit, have been given the “green light” to both practice with the team and to be on the roster once the season begins. In this scenario, you are absolutely invited to camp, practice and essentially have been guaranteed a roster spot if you choose. One thing to note is, freshmen rarely travel with the team, and the preferred walk-on status is no guarantee that you’ll be awarded a scholarship down the road, but you will have an opportunity to do so.

A Walk-On has a much tougher position because in this case, you will compete to see if you are even good enough to practice with players currently on the roster. Once you’ve proven yourself to the coaches, roster spots and even scholarship opportunities may open up.

11th Annual National Kicking Camp; Snapping Event

On January 19th and 20th of 2013 the 11th Annual National Kicking & Snapping Event will be held at Faith Lutheran High School in Las Vegas. Participants should be sure to arrive on Friday, January 18, 2013 and plan to stay until Sunday night, January 20, 2013. This is a two day event that ecompasses kicking and punting camps, as well as long snapping camps and is offically called The Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping January National Kicking and Snapping Event. This Vegas event can be attended by long snappers, place kickers and punter. You must compete in this event to give yourself a shot at the Top 12 Camp, which is a camp that can only be attended by people who are invited.

Whoever wins at this camp will get a chance to attend either the Rubio Long Snapping Camp or the Chris Sailor Kicking Camp at no charge. If someone is a punter, long snapper or place kicker, and is in at least the eighth grade, they can enter the competition. This camp event is designed for students who play football and want to play at a higher level than they are currently playing at. The first day of this event involves training on how to play football. On the second day, competitions are held and finalists are announced.

Event participants are responsible for performing all necessary stretching and warming up before event activities begin for the day. These kicking camps are a valuable experience for any student serious about playing football.
