Team Jackson Kicking has quite a few prospects that have been signed and been offered scholarships to all divisions of football in the latest two months, as well as preferred walk on invitations to colleges. The most recent camp TJK facilitated was with Coach Chris Husby of Special Teams Football Academy. The two kicking organizations partnered together and put on a fantastic camp in Atlanta, GA that saw 43 campers, 8 staff members, and 10 states represented. Picture below:
The camps duration was 8 hours on a beautiful January Saturday, with 73 degree sunny temperatures, and about 5-10 mph wind. The facilities at Carrollton High School were perfect and the event included demonstrations by staff, instruction, competitions, charting, and live game situations. Most of the sessions were videotaped by the camp directors, and during lunch, parents and players were invited to watch film and learn more about the recruiting process.
This camp was for ages 10-19, but the focus was on high school aged kickers, punters, longsnappers, and holders to showcase their skills in front of college coaches from D2, D3, NAIA, and JUCO schools. There were a handful of coaches on hand, and there were over 30 coaches after the event that have requested recommendations on seniors and juniors as possible players for their program.
As of March 18, 2013 – there have been numerous specialists that attended the Southern Specialists Camp that have received significant interest from various colleges. Below is an updated list of signings, offers and commitments from players that attended the camp, as well as worked with TJK. There are also rankings and videos that can be view at TJK website.
