Kicking Specialists Jump Into The Spotlight

Just like any other position on the football field, kickers and punters are always in play for scholarships.

With more emphasis put on the kicking game in the past five years, you are watching more events and showcases in the off-season that elevate the status of many talented kickers and punters.

No matter what instructor you use or what event you attend, special teams – including long snappers are now standing tall.

National, regional and local kickers and punters have been working overtime to ensure that they are receiving recognition.

Here is a look at some of the Miami-Dade and Broward kickers and punters to keep an eye during the off season.
