Kohl's Comments

Button had a strong showing at the 2017 National Scholarship Camp. He charted well in punting and kickoffs and showed flashes of his potential in field goals. He averaged 66 yards per kickoff and hit several 70 yard kickoffs. Cleaning up rotation on his ball flight should help improve his field goal accuracy. He showed solid hang time in his punting ability, creating a more consistent drop should help with his development in punting.
