In a special game on ESPN's Monday Night Football, Drew Brees became the NFL's all-time passing yards leader, and joined the 500-touchdown-club.
For the Kohl's program, this game was extra special. All 6 NFL specialists that participated, both Saints and Redskins, have trained with the Kohl's Kicking, Punting, and Snapping staff. Through their football journey, most of the specialists in this game have played a key role in helping build the platform and standard that Kohl's Kicking, Punting, and Long Snapping is today.
They've played a major part in building the credibility of the Kohl's program with collegiate and NFL coaches, which has paved the way for younger athletes to be seen on a legitimate stage that is now watched by a captive audience of coaches at all levels of football.
Away from their success and trust in the process that helped build the foundation of Kohl's, these specialists embody what we want every Kohl's athlete to be off of the football field as well. Their involvement in the community, their value in family, and their understanding that the title "role-model" comes standard with any football career has set the bar for the Kohl's athletes that have and will come after them for years to come.
