Evaluating the Kickoff Weekend punters/kickers

Analysis courtesy of featured kicking/punting instructor Brandon Kornblue.

"The IMG Academy football program was able to provide a first-class camp environment," Kornblue said. "The facilities are second to none. Chris Weinke provided the same type of leadership as camp director as he demonstrated as a Heisman Trophy winning QB. Having the opportunity to work with the athletes for three days allowed me to walk through detailed instruction on the physical and mental aspects of kicking and punting. I thoroughly enjoyed working the inaugural IMG Academy football program Football Camp."

Codi Folsom - Class of 2012 - Mitchell High School (FL)

Codi has all the tools to be a successful kicker and punter. He is extremely coachable. On kickoffs, he needs to take his steps smooth, starting slow and accelerating on approach. On punts, he needs to keep his first step (landing flat on his right foot, not the heel) and swing up, not across his body.

RJ Kuck - Class of 2011 - The Villages Charter High School (FL)

RJ has the size, frame, and tools to reach the division one level. RJ charted the best punt hang times, and with improved consistency, he could receive D1 attention. After beginning the camp with a lean to the right, he should good improvement with his field goal follow-through. RJ's ability to kick field goals off the ground is now an advantage over most high school players.

Kadin Kerns - Class of 2011 - Braden River High School (FL)

Kadin has the potential to be a D-1A scholarship kicker. He had best kickoff distance and hang time at camp but used 2" tee. Colleges will need to see him off a 1" tee. FG consistency is good, but with improvement, could evaluate him to be a top national prospect. Kadin is very close to being a productive punter as well. He needs to keep his drop extended over his kicking leg with his toe depressed and ankle knee locked.

Travis Shinn - Class of 2011 - Rockwall High School (TX)

Travis showed tremendous improvement with his punting and kicking. He needs to continue to concentrate on keeping his ankle locked on FG's and kickoffs if Travis continues to work hard, he has a chance to be a top college prospect.
