Kohl's Comments

Esnard recently competed at Kohl's National Scholarship Camp in July of 2020. He has won multiple field goal competitions against 200+ campers over the past year at Kohl's events. His leg speed is obvious and he seems to rise up in pressure situations. Esnard had a huge performance during the Future Stars punt competition in January 2019 by winning the competition against 200 other campers at that event. He has improved his ball rotation on field goals off the ground. Esnard has the talent to be a D1 scholarship player!
