Talent Recap: 2016 Southern Spring Showcase


The 2016 Southern Spring Showcase included many top kickers, punters and long snappers. There were talented athletes from multiple states across America who came out to compete for national evaluations and rankings from the Kohl's Kicking, Punting and Long Snapping Camp national staff. The following athletes separated themselves among the talented field, and should be highly looked at by college coaches in the months to come.

Jonathan Doerer, a Class of 2017 kicker/punter from North Carolina, had an outstanding day. Doerer charted 10-of-10 on field goals and also did a great job on the kickoff charting phase. The athlete won the kickoff charting phase and hit a kick that had 4.4 seconds of hang time, and traveled 84 yards.

Brent Cimaglia, a 2017 kicker from the state of Tennessee also had an outstanding day going 10-10 on field goals during charting and kicking off extremely well throughout the morning and afternoon. Cimaglia is a highly recruited prospect and should have an outstanding summer.

Class of 2018 kicker/punter Jake Camarda from Georgia had a great day on kickoffs and during the punt phase of camp. He won the punt charts in the morning session and was also very competitive during the drill work phase in the afternoon on both field goals and kickoffs.

Noah Ruggles, a 2017 kicker from the state of Florida, showed well. Noah won the field goal competition and went a perfect 10-of-10 during the charting phase of the showcase. His improvement in kickoffs was noted, and should be highly looked at during the 2016 summer.
