With three of the four specialists taken in the 2021 NFL Draft, and the undrafted free agent signings that have followed, the legacy of Kohl's athletes moving on to the NFL has remained strong. With the opening of the Kohl's National Training Center in Texas, the ability for Kohl's NFL Draft eligible kickers, punters, and long snappers to prepare for the NFL Combine and Pro Day has reached a new level.
Kohl's CommentsKlein's most recent Kohl’s ranking camp was during the 2021 spring Showcase Tour. He charted very well on both field goals and kick offs with 10 points made and an average score of 105.6. He is developing into a top 2022 prospect and we expect him to have a bright future at the next level. Klein attended a Kohl's 2020 Winter Showcase Camp. He earned a 4.5 star rating at the event and showed good upside as a kicker in the drill work phase of camp. Klein was able to also attend the Future Stars Event and work on his mechanics and fundamentals. He averaged around a 103 on kick offs at these events and shows to have a strong leg on field goals as well. His improvement in the next 6-12 months will be key for his football future!
Drew’s football kicking career began in the Spring of 2020 as a sophomore. A standout soccer player and team captain, his kicking power and accuracy was immediately recognized by members of the football coaching staff attending playoff soccer games the previous Fall. The Special Teams and Head coaches invited Drew to an informal kickaround and his football potential was obvious. The staff built a tailored off-season training program that put him on the field two days a week. Hard work, practice, and great coaching earned Drew the starting Varsity kicker position. He opened with two touchbacks in week one and was 3/4 on recovered onside kicks during the Fall 2020 season. After a successful first year and strong feedback from the coaching staff and his teammates, Drew was extremely motivated to improve his kicking skills. A new offseason training regimen built around specialized weight training, national kicking camps, and 1:1 workouts with high school coaches will accelerate his development. The new plan balances competitive club soccer, part time employment, and a commitment to education excellence focused on maintaining a 4.0 GPA through graduation.
