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. But I wonder how many have thought about what it takes to achieve it and how to make it happen with their training? I am a big believer of setting high goals, laying out a detailed plan and doing everything in my power to try and achieve them.
Kohl's CommentsKirkwood recently competed at the Kohl’s 2021 Winter Showcase event. He was one field goal away from being perfect on the day and with a 70 and 67 yard kickoff he showed that he is ready to compete at the college level. Kirkwood had an excellent showing at the 2021 Kohl's National Scholarship Camp. He was impressive on his filed goal striking and was able to chart 27 points. He displayed a technically sound leg swing with excellent confidence. He was impressive on his kickoffs as well by averaging a 105.9 on his kickoffs for his two sessions of charting. He has Power 5 talent and the next 6 months will be fun to continue to see him develop. Kirkwood had a tremendous showing at the 2020 Eastern Winter Showcase Camp. He showed excellent command of his technique on his field goals and was able to score 9 points. He charted several kickoffs over 60 yards at the event.
My name is Nathan Kirkwood, and I am the starting varsity placekicker for Greencastle-Antrim High School, in Greencastle, PA. In addition to football, I am also a varsity soccer captain, peer leader, school board representative, student council member, letterman in track, Leadership Franklin County Youth graduate, PA Special Olympics Unified Bocce teammate, Greencastle Flyers volunteer, Grand Point Church volunteer, and a lifeguard at Moss Spring Swim Club. In the future, I hope to attend a college with a strong STEM program, and later become a pilot.
