Kohl's Comments

Verdugo recently competed in the 2022 Kohl's Senior Challenge. He flashed big potential in his punting once again and was able to chart some excellent punts at camp. The majority of his punts charted were over 40 yards at the event and he showed the ability to hit spirals on command at camp. Verdugo competed at the Kohl’s 2021 Winter Showcase event. His "A" ball of 53-yards with 4.75 seconds of hang time showed us that he has big potential to be a highly recruited 2022 punter. Verdugo attended the Kohl's National Scholarship Camp in July of 2021. He graded out at the 5 star level at this event. His score of 105.7 points on 30 punts shows his potential. Verdugo does need to keep working to reach his potential but he should be able to compete at the college level.

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. 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.
