Hang time and distance on punts and kickoffs; height, accuracy and distance on placement kicks are obvious identifiers of natural talent. This evaluation process enables us to effectively "sort out" the top prospects and identify each athletes "capability." An important aspect that allows the athlete to show at any time his ability to consistently kick or punt as if he were already in college. By displaying this type of performance any kicker and punter can greatly increase the likelihood of earning a spot on our list.

For over 25 years, college football coaches and recruiters across the country have relied on us to share with them the names of top kicking and punting prospects. We provide information directly to them through our national mailing, social media as well as through immediate posting on our website. They are confident knowing we will see "in person" athletes who are ready and further preparing themselves for the next level.

It's all about credibility. Athletes named to this exclusive list, will appreciate the accomplishment more by knowing they have "earned it". Most importantly, college coaches and recruiters know that each name listed tells the story of an athlete who is very deserving as well as one who has taken the initiative to continuously improve their skills.
