    Athlete Bio

    Ethan completed his Junior season of football last fall and has continued to attend showcase events and kicking camps during the offseason. He has been building his leg strength and refining his technique as he hits 70+ yd kickoffs and 50+ yd field goals. Ethan's raw talent, combined with his eagerness to learn and drive to improve make it easy for him to be taught by nationally acclaimed kicking coaches. Ethan is putting in the work to become the best player he can be as he wants to play football at the collegiate level and earn a scholarship.

    During this past junior year, Ethan continued in his starting role and was 32/32 on PATs and kicked 15 touchbacks. His leadership and technical abilities improved greatly over his 2021 season. As a sophomore, he was one of four kickers on his team and won the varsity starting spot. He went 27/29 on PATs with the other two being blocked and 8 touchbacks.

    Ethan's commitment to his off-the-field (3.4 GPA) duties and his focus on-the-field make him a desirable recruit. This student-athlete would be an asset to any roster. Ethan is from Marshall, Minnesota and wants to study business management. His integrity shines as he also enjoys refereeing soccer at the youth and collegiate levels.
