December 2021 - Season ended early in Playoffs on 11/22/2021, but still a good year to earn some stats. Finished with kickoff touchbacks 51/67, onside kicks recovered 4/7, PATs 51/53, FG 9/13 (long 43 yards), Punts number 22 with average 37.3 yards from scrimmage line. If given the opportunity to use my skill in college, I feel next year would be another substantial year for growth and strength. Check out my 2021 Football Season Highlights on youtube
March 2021 - Football season was late; but gracious Louisiana was able to have a football season. My team finished Class 5A State Runner-ups. First time in school history for the football team to ever go to state championships. Proud time to be a Trojan! I feel good about my form, looking forward to getting in the gym a lot and concentrate on getting stronger.
September 1, 2020 - Update, the last 6 months has been an unusual athletic training period. Even though I was unable to be with coaches and team, I was able to get in good training time and spend time improving my form. This time paid off with big kick off improvements. I am now consistently kicking touchbacks with my 2020 summer showcase showing all touchback results with big balls of 68 and 70 yards. My field goals are consistent to 45 yards. I am disappointed that I am unable to submit football game stats this season because Louisiana has postponed their football season, but I look forward to a time when we can compete.
January 15, 2020 - My name is Abel Peterman, and I am a sophomore at Class 5A Alexandria Senior High School in Louisiana. I feel honored that I was chosen as a Varsity Football kicker 2019 year. I am particularly grateful because I was ruled ineligible by LHSAA to participate in any sport at any level my Freshmen year because I played Varsity Soccer at a private school my eighth grade year. Although I had to accept the big disappointment of no sports my freshman year, it allowed me more time to train harder and grow stronger. Now EVERY time I step on the field with my team, I feel privileged. Alexandria Senior High is one of the most diverse schools in the nation. We all come from different backgrounds, and we all share the common purpose of Trojan Domination!! (our school motto). This power of “one” not only gives us an advantage on the athletic field, but also in our academics. ASH was graded as the only “A” state rated school in our county, and I am proud to be a Trojan! I’ve been kicking a ball since I could walk. My sports history is not football, but as an extreme soccer player. I’ve been playing soccer at all levels and attending advanced camps since I was very young. I’ve played in various leagues from recreational, to competitive travel, to olympic development teams, to varsity high school teams at an early age. At age 13, I was introduced to kicking a new type of ball - a football. Now I have a new obsession to kick! I have learned a lot this year. It was relatively easy to learn the basic steps and kick the ball well for my first football season because of my soccer background. After reflecting on my season, I realized that I missed out on something very important. I did not have a good understanding of the proper technique and form critical to connecting with the ball. I am currently working hard with Kohl’s Kicking Camps, watching videos, lifting weights, staying stretched, and critiquing my technique and form for next year. I am very excited about training and improvement for next football season. Lastly, this wouldn’t be a good bio if I didn’t mention my support system. This includes my parents who support me to strive both athletically and academically, and also my coaches and team who have faith in me and believe in me!
