Kohl's Kicking In Action Picture

Long-Snapping Camps

Kohl's Snapping Camps will be in more locations and offer more training options in 2016 than ever before.  Coach Casey Casper will lead the snapping division in 2016.  Our snapper ratings are sent to every college program that offers football scholarships.  Our top 2016 snapping campers will have profiles made on ESPN.com and also be included in articles written by Kohl's staff from training camps from all over the nation. Our goal in 2016 is to have America's premier snapping camps.  We will again select the snapper's to play in the Under Armour All-American Game.  Our influence in snapping at the national level continues to grow to the point where almost every D1 school that offered a snapping scholarship last year consulted with us and wanted our feed back on players we've seen. Check out Kohl's 2015 college signing list and see the guys who were helped by Kohl's snapping camps. If you are a serious snapper our snapping division is now at a point after 12 years where we can offer the best value nationally to our snappers.   

 


 

Recent Email - I wanted to write because Theresa, and I are so impressed with Jamie's credibility within the collegiate Football network, and his commitment to PJ. I am sure this rings true with the rest of the Kohl's team. There is no way we could have the resourced all the teams that have shown an interest in PJ.  You guys have given PJ all the tools to succeed at division-1 level. Further Jamie has given us some very good and sincere insight on the schools that have shown an interest in PJ. Kevin has kept in touch with PJ and I. PJ feels a very close bond with both Jamie, and staff. We are one set of parents who are beaming with pride knowing our son will have a chance to realize a dream of playing in a big time program. This would not have been possible had we not attended the Kohl's Camp. --Pete Mangieri (father of former Nebraska Snapper
