Kohl's Comments

Bastaja recently attended the Kohl's Midwest Showcase Camp and the Kohl's Senior Challenge in the winter of 2021. He is a hard working young specialist who continues to grow as a combo speicliast with each ranking event he attends. He competed very well during the competitions and showed that he performs very well under pressure situations. Bastaja converted on 21 field goals at the 2020 Kohl's National Scholarship Camp. His biggest kickoff included a kick that was 67 yards with 3.69 seconds of hang time. He did show a consistency with his kickoff and field goals charts that will only get better as the year goes on with continued reps. He should continue to get stronger as the year goes on as well.
