Prospect Rankings

KCKicking’s evaluation of a prospect is reflected in two ways: rankings and ratings. Previously, the only way to improve your ranking and rating with KCKicking was to attend a College-Prep Showcase; however, due to increased demand, we now provide additional opportunities to increase individual standings. Rankings and ratings are both updated three times per year, after the College-Prep Showcase and Elite Performance Camps (January, June and August).

KCKicking uses this star rating scale to assess a prospect's current level of play.

 Thomas Kopcho
5'9"
170
Thomas put on an outstanding performance at our 2016 College-Prep Showcase. He made the field goal finals as well as the punt finals (out of 90 participants). He hits his field goals from the ground and shows excellent ball-striking ability. The ball explodes off his foot. He went a combined 13-16 on field goals over two rounds showing he is a very accurate kicker. We are very impressed with Thomas and are certain a College football future awaits him. Both is kicking and punting ability are College level. To be rated higher, he will need to improve his production on kickoffs. Thomas has a bright future!

 Taiten Winkel
6'0"

Taiten is an excellent combo specialist. He was the highest placing punter in his class in the punt competition at the 2016 College-Prep Showcase. He shows good mechanics and a repeatable swing. His best ball was a 4.48 hang, 49 yard punt. This is a huge punt! Taiten is also an excellent field goal kicker capable of making a lot of kicks. He has a fluid swing and makes kicking look easy. His ball-striking is great. With hard work and improvement in his kickoff production and taking his field goals from the ground, Taiten will battle for top kicking and punting honors through his high school career!

 Jesse Bridge
N/A
N/A
Jesse is a very talented young kicker and is one of the best in his class. He competed at a high level at the 2016 College-Prep Showcase. He is very well trained and shows great mechanics, fluid leg swing and excellent ball striking ability. He already kicks field goals from the ground which seperates him from a lot of the guys in his class. With no doubt, Jesse will remain as one of the best kickers in his class and with maturation and strength gain could become an elite kicker. College kicking is in the future for Jesse. He is also a good punter and showed his ability by making the punt finals round at the showcase. The next showcase will be huge for Jesse. We are anxious to see how Jesse improves over the next season.

 Parker Lacina
N/A
N/A
Parker is an extremely strong kicker. On field goals and kickoffs, he has one of the top 3 strongest legs in his class. His trajectory is great and he can also drive the ball on longer kicks. Parker is an elite level kicker. Parker performed very well at our 2016 College-Prep, finishing in 5th in both the field goal and kickoff competitions (out of 90 kickers). To stay at the top of his class and become a 5 star kicker, we will need him to be comfortable and effective kicking field goals from the ground. Look for Parker to battle for the #1 ranking in his class at both kicking and punting!

 Logan Clark
N/A
N/A
Logan is the brother of a former KCK athlete (Lane Clark - full scholarship kicker at Tennessee State) and shows a lot of the same attributes as his brother did at the same age. Logan has great mechanics and demonstrates an ability to execute his technique with a high degree of repeatability. His field goals fly straight and with decent ball rotation. He has field goal range up to 50 yards. While productive as a punter, he will maximize his potential if he refines his mechanics and improves his steps and tempo in his approach. We look forward to watching Logan compete among the best in his class for the duration of his high school career!

 Ryan Lewis

Ryan competed in the punt and kickoff portion of our 2016 College-Prep Showcase. He narrowly missed the punt finals by 1 spot. He shows good strength and repeatable mechanics. We would like to see him shorten his steps and increase his tempo so he can be a little more explosive through the ball. Ryan is strong and athletic. With hard work this upcoming Spring and Summer he should be able to compete amongst the best punters in his class for his senior season!

 Ryan Gremillion
5'11"

Ryan is a talented kicker who shows a routine, consistent approach/swing/follow through and has repeatable mechanics. He competed at our 2016 College-Prep Showcase. His ball flight is excellent, and if he misses they are narrow misses. Ryan could get more power if he widened his approach and used more quad during the kick swing phase of his routine. His kickoffs punts are productive, but as Ryan matures and builds his strength he will see more improvement in this area. Ryan is considered one of the best kickers in his class and should have a promising future!

 Moises Celaya
N/A
N/A
Moises might have the biggest leg in his class. He smashes kickoffs. He came in second in the kickoff competition out of 90 kickers at our 2016 College-Prep Showcase. He is a little raw of field goals. We would like to see him increase his lean-off at ball strike. This should help him hone in on his target more consistently. Moises should develop a true three step approach to shorten his block spot on punts. With the leg strength Moises has, he will be competing among the best in his class for years to come. Very talented prospect with a very bright future!

 Nathan Mahloch
N/A
N/A
Nathan has the frame to excel at punting. He demonstrates good hands and uses his size to create a lot of power in his strikes. He could sharpen up his mechancis to maximize his production and make some adjustments to his posture through the swing phase. He performed well during this portion of the 2016 College-Prep Showcase. Nathan also kicks but we were unable to do a full evaluation (injury).

 Edwin Rosenthal

Edwin showed a live and explosive leg at our 2016 College-Prep Showcase. At times he hits a very nice ball. He has the tools to become a good high school kicker. He would benefit from formal instruction to best develop his mechanics and technique. With hard work and improvement in the off-season, Edwin could make a big move in the rankings.

 Ethan Hall

Ethan shows that he is capable of hitting a quality ball on field goals and is an effective high school kicker. He has good rhythm on his kickoff approach. He has gotten stronger over the two events we have evaluated Ethan. At times, Ethan can turn his punts over and be very productive. His drop will improve once he practices releasing the ball with one hand. He shows good hands on catching the snap. Look for Ethan to climb the rankings as he continues to develop as a kicking specialist!

 Trey Harris

Trey put on a phenomonal performance at the 2016 College-Prep Showcases. He was the only participant to go a perfect 8 for 8 during the field goal charting preliminary round (out of 90 kickers). Trey shows a big leg on kickoffs but needs to improve the consistency and quality of his ball strikes to be more effective. To become a 5 star kicker, Trey will need to be productive hitting field goals from the groundand his kickoffs reach the end zone. Trey has the tools to be a very successful combo specialist for years to come.

 Nathan Rockwell

Nathan is one of the better kickers in his class. He is hitting field goals from the ground which seperates him from most of the other guys in his class and is also top 5 in kickoff production. He is servicable as a punter but will need to see improvement to be considered at the College level. We are excited for what this next year has in store for Nathan. We anticipate him getting bigger and stronger and making a push to be one of our more elite kickers and climb towards the top of the rankings!

 Noah Austin
6'2"

Noah is a highly trained kicker and punter. His mechanics are repeatable and solid. He currently uses a 1 inch block on field goals. His approach and follow through are consistent, however his ball rotation can be inconsistent at times. With maturity and gains in the weight room, he will see improvement on the production of his kickoffs and increase his range on field goals. Noah gets a lot of power with his punt approach and swing. His mold and drop are consistent. His body type is ideal for punting and could develop over the next couple of years to become an elite level punter.

 Koby Kiefer
5'10"

Koby is a skilled kicker and punter. At times, he shows clean ball strikes on field goals, but he is inconsistent at hitting his target lines. He has a strong leg and is explosive in his swinging motion. At the 2015 College-Prep Showcase he was the top placing class of 2018 kicker in the kickoff competition. He placed 2nd in his class in the punt competition. We'd like to see him utilize his arms for balance more effectively during field goals as well as speed up his approach. Koby has a ton of potential and is close to putting it all together and seeing significant on-field production!

 Aaron Coash
5'11"

Aaron charted for us at the end of the 2016 summer as well as at our 2016 College-Prep Showcase. He demonstrated clean and repeatable kicking mechanics. He is most comfortable kicking from a 1/2 inch block, but also showed us the ability to hit the ball pure from the ground. He is an effective field goal kicker. We'd like to see his ball strikes and consistency improve on his kickoffs. He serves as a reliable backup punter but would need to improve his technique to become more productive at this skill. Aaron can hang with some of the best kickers in his class and we look forward to seeing him make the permanent transition to kicking from the ground and improving his rating and ranking.

 Davin Dorrell
N/A
N/A
Davin has an impressive leg. He is able to get great height on FGs and quality distance on KOs. As Davin starts to move down in field goal block size, he'll need to adjust his lean-off during the planting portion of the kick. Davin is very skilled for his age. He's currently stronger as a kicker compared to as a punter, but he shows the ability to turn some balls over and achieve good ball contact. To improve his punting consistency, he'll need to adjust his approach so it is more linear and down field. With formal instruction, Davin could greatly improve as an all around specialist. Look for him to excel at the high school level and potentially develop into a College prospect.

 Dalton Rogers
5'7"

At our EPC - Wichita (2015) camp, Dalton went a perfect 8/8 on the FG charting portion. Since then, he has improved his ball-striking and gained more confidence and has now been kicking off the ground for over a year. Dalton has trained in our group training program and has demonstrated the ability to compete with guys older than him. His kickoffs are improving. Continued athletic development will help Dalton improve his hang and distance on his kickoffs and bring his rating above a four star kicker. He is also serviceable a punter in a backup role. Some adjustments to his technique are necessary to maximize his production and consistency. Dalton has a bright future and we are looking forward to seeing him continue to improve over the next year!

 Chandler Doss
5'11"

Chandler has solid kicking mechanics and has a repeatable swing. His ball flies true to his target. When he has a mis-hit, they are manageable and narrowly miss his target. We would like to see him stay firmer in his core when hitting kickoffs so he can drive his leg through the ball more aggressively and without restriction. We want his hurdle to take him down field. His punt routine is fluid. Over the next season we want him to develop a three step maximum approach so his block spot is closer to 3-4 yards from where he starts his approach. Chandler is a great high school kicker who is dependable and is a pleasure to work with.

 Zachary Maldacker

Zachary is one of the better kickoff specialists in his class. He showed well at the 2016 College-Prep Showcase, finishing in kickoffs around the top of his class. He shows a lively leg on field goals. He would benefit from increasing his lean off at ball strike so his ball will fly true to his target line. It will also help him come to balance in his follow through. His punting skills are raw and could benefit from formal instruction. With his big leg, he will be able to be productive as soon as his technique is refined. Zachary is a pleasure to work with.

 Phillip Gayle
6'3"
165
Phillip competed at our 2016 College-Prep Showcase. He has long legs and at times can put a good foot behind the ball. His mechanics are a little raw and would benefit from additional flexibility. On his shorter kicks, he should kick with more confidence and drive the ball beyond the target. To become more consistent on his kickoffs, he will need to develop a routine and measure out his steps. He opens up his hips too soon as he comes in to approach the ball. Keep his hips moving towards the ball and then he can drive the ball down the middle of the field. He can get ahold of some good punts but he has a tendency to drop the ball with the nose down. We want the ball to be flat upon molding and dropping. He has a lot of raw ability and could translate well into additional production. Promising prospect with a lot of upside potential.

Kaleb attended our 2016 College-Prep Showcase and showed flashes of being a great kicker. We would like to see him make the transition to hitting field goals from a 1 inch block or from the ground soon. He can have mis-hits at times, but when he hits it well it flies with some of the best in his class. We would like to see him approach shorter on both his field goals and punts. With improvement this Spring and Summer, Kaleb should make a push to climb the rankings.

 Noah Knepper

Noah is a talented kicker. He has a strong leg and shows excellent future promise. He is still a bit raw, but there is potential here. Field goals and kickoffs are both strong at times. With continued hard work on his technique and overall consistency, he will compete with some of the top kickers in this class. His punt fundamentals look solid and repeatable, but to excel at punting he will need to improve his explosiveness and turn over ratio. One to keep a close eye on.

Field goals and kickoffs both show College level potential. He is aggressive on his punts. Slowly down and refining his steps will help his consistency. As he continues to work on his technique and consistency, he will move even further up the rankings. He is a fine young man that is a pleasure to work with. Nice prospect.

Skylar is a very fluid field goal kicker. His approach, swinging motion and follow-through are natural looking and he kicks with ease. He gets excellent trajectory and is a pure ball striker. His mechanics are great. As Skylar grows and adds muscle to his frame, he'll become a high level kicker. At this time, his kickoffs need improvement. We'd like to see him carry his approach momentum through the finish of his leg swing. Skylar has an excellent foundation. With hard work and determination, look for Skylar to compete as a top kicker for years to come.
