2019 Ua Picks

With over 600 of the best kickers, punters, and long snappers from across America, the 2020 Under Armour All-America Game Selections were awarded at the 2019 Kohl's National Scholarship Camp.

Place-kickers

After a long weekend of charting and competitions, Harrison Mevis was selected as a kicker for the game topping the camp with his field goal and kickoff performance combined.

Joshua Karty may have been the most epic of selections, after 5 of the top field goal kickers were put head-to-head in a field goal competition in front of 1,200 athletes and spectators. Karty kicked an astounding 67-yard field goal to solidify the spot. The Stanford commit is also known for kicking a 70-yard field goal at the Kohl's Underclassman Challenge.

Punter Bryce Leighton earned the first spot in the Under Armour Under All-America Game as a punter with an outstanding performance throughout the event.

The second spot was earned by prospect Ryan Marks out of Utah, who came away with a win in the final punt competition among a group of top-performing punters.

Long Snappers

Alex Peitsch and Jaden Green battled a handful of top long snappers in the final round of the long snapping competition. Both athletes snapped an on-target .67-second long snap in a tie, both earning a spot in the Under Armour All-America Game.

Recruiting Blog: Setting Goals-- Athletic, Academic & Recruiting

But I wonder how many have thought about what it takes to achieve it and how to make it happen with their training? I am a big believer of setting high goals, laying out a detailed plan and doing everything in my power to try and achieve them.
