(VIDEO) Talent Recap: 2015 Eastern Winter Showcase


The Kohl’s National Showcase Tour kicked off with the Eastern Showcase. This past camp had the most talent the Kohl’s staff has seen in this region in the past 5 to 6 years. The following athletes were the guys who dominated the many different events against a great crop of talent from this region. We look forward to what next few months and year holds for many of these athletes.

The most impressive prospect was Charlie Kuhbander from Ohio. The Class of 2017 kicker finished first in the charting phase on kickoffs and also won the kickoff competition with a blast that was estimated at about 80 yards with over 4 seconds in hang time. Kuhbander did a great job in the field goal portion as well and is someone to watch for in the 2017 class nationally.

Another outstanding prospect was Tommy Martin, a 2017 kicker/punter combo from Virginia. His kickoffs were excellent and his punting was great as well. He finished in the top 3 in many of the camp’s different competitions. He is a strong player who should be highly looked at in the 2017 class.

Nate Snyder, a 2017 punter from Ohio, had an outstanding camp. Nate is 6-foot 4-inches, 210 pounds and possesses big-time talent and showed it during the punt chart phase and also the punt competitions. Nate is a big-time prospect who should be looked at in the months to come.

Hunter Gray, a 2017 long snapper from Ohio at 6-foot 1-inch and 209 pounds, had a solid day as well. Gray showed a lot of athleticism and won the overall long snapping competition held at the end of the event.

Two other prospects that stood out at camp are Class of 2016 prospects David Cote from Canada who made 10-of-10 field goals in the charting session. Our overall punt champion in the camp competition was
