Our Instructional Camps are designed to be beneficial for age groups ranging from Middle school through high school. The campers were split into groups and the instruction was tailored specifically to each athlete we saw. We covered the basic techniques as well as help develop those athletes which required some more advanced training and instruction.
Along with providing instruction, there were multiple kicking and punting competitions throughout the day including: Last man standing competition, punting competition, kickoff competition and field goal charting competition.
The pool of talent at this instructional camp was quite impressive. All of our competitions (4 of them) came down to the wire! Kicker/Punter Blake Lynch, class of 2015, was our most improved athlete. We worked with him at the College-Prep Showcase back in December, 2012, and since then he showed improvement on his ball-striking and tremendous improvement on his strength. Blake also won the last man standing and punt competition for the underclassmen. Lane Clark proved at this camp that he is one of the most consistent kickers we've ever worked with. He continues to add to his resume as he picked up the last man standing, punt and kickoff competition awards at this camp. Drew Klinghagen (underclassmen) was very impressive during the kickoff competition. He hammered the ball 70+ yards on each kick and ended up beating out all of the upperclassmen as well! The last competition we held was the field goal charting session. Christian Helmke and Daniel Ohm stepped up big. Christian had the best performance as an underclassmen and Daniel Ohm had the best performance of the entire camp. He went a perfect 8 for 8. We rarely see a perfect charting session. In the last two College-Prep Showcases we've held (Dec. 2012 and April 2013) we had a total of 4 perfect session! Joe Stevens turned some heads as he was hitting some huge punts and was crushing his field goals all day. Others who showed well include: Jack Haltom, Ty Stonebraker, Jesse Brown, Adam Babson, Andrew McGhee, Mikaela Rader and Spencer Truman.
