We are proud to announce the 2018 Kohl's High School Season All-American Team!
Kohl's CommentsPickens competed at the Kohl’s Texas Showcase held in Dallas, Texas. He showed glimmers of his talent throughout camp. Staying under control with his mechanics and utilizing his explosiveness will help him develop as a snapper. He has great athleticism and he put this on display by running a 4.98 second 40 yard dash.
I have been a 4 year starter in High School. 2 Years on Varsity. Due to my strength I played Center or Guard in Texas 5a. I have been lucky enough to have some wonderful former NFL players as coaches, trainers and mentors. I have been trained to play Offensive Line by Patrick Lewis (Seahawks) and Defensive Line by Trey Bryant (Former Baylor Bear and signed by Atlanta Falcons). I have also been trained to play FB/HB/TE by Tory Humphrey (New Orleans Saints) and later by JaCorey Sheppard (49ers) and Linebacker by Horace Miller (Seahawks). My Long Snaps were timed between .6 and .65 to punters Summer of 2019 although my timed snaps at Kohl's camps to targets are slower. I had never snapped at a target before and every punter I have worked with preferred snaps at their numbers or even face so my snaps come out high in grading. But if you watch video with a punter or placekicker I never miss. I played for the Allen Wild Dawgz 6th through 8th grade and went up against some of the best teams anywhere. I was blocking 300lb linemen in the 6th grade. I played for Reedy High School my freshman and sophomore years then for Lebanon Trail High School my Junior and Senior years. I am looking to continue playing the game I love while I continue to grow and improve every year.
