10 Pro Punters Go Head-To-Head During Training Session
The 2016 Texas Spring Showcase had an outstanding field in attendance. It was one of the more talented regions the staff has seen this spring on the National Showcase Tour. At times there was a heavy crosswind, and a heavy tailwind, but conditions were great to get accurate evaluations to compare across the nation.
The 2016 Western Spring Showcase kicked off in Los Angeles, California at Fullerton Junior College. It attracted many of the region's top kickers, punters and long snappers who came out to compete for national rankings and evaluations. In the first stop on the 2016 National Spring Showcase Tour, the following athletes seperated themselves from the rest of the athletes in attendance.
It's known throughout the long snapping fraternity that long snappers are the unsung heros of any football team's special team unit. Wyoming long snapper Brendan Turelli, former Kohl's No.1 ranked Class of 2013 long snapper and Under Armour All-America Game participant, enjoys the behind-the-scenes lifestyle on a long snapper and being an important asset to the Wyoming Football squad.
NFL prospects Riley Dixon (Syracuse), Will Monday (Duke) and Zach Paul (Akron) prepare for a shot at the NFL in a training session with Kohl's Kicking Camp Director Jamie Kohl. Dixon and Monday will receive a chance at the NFL Combine to perform in front of coaches. Punter Zach Paul is expected to turn heads as well over the next few months.
