Kohl's Comments

Knobloch has continued to improve at every Kohl’s Snapping Camp he attends. He finished on a high at the Kohl’s National Scholarship Camp by winning the camp wide competition and punching his ticket to the Under Armour All-America Game. Knobloch competed against well over 100 other 2022 snappers and came out on top. The ball absolutely jumps off his hands and always has a clean rotation. Knobloch is arguably the best ball for ball snappers in the country. One of the most impressive things about this young man is his want to be special and his willingness to work for it. Knobloch is the type of person and athlete that every coach wants in their program.

With the majority of specialists historically being recruited the latest, all the way through the summer following their senior year, a number of Kohl's Kicking, Punting, and Long Snapping athletes in the Class of 2023 have found early success with great performances at Kohl's events, during their seasons, and at college camps.

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

Being a Kohl’s Coach for over ten years, the one thing I hear the most from athletes is talk of their star rating & ranking and what they want to achieve, especially during the Showcase season.
