    Athlete Bio

    I am a Freshman at Cedar Rapids Prairie High School and I play Football, Basketball and I run Track & Field. t has always been a dream of mine to punt or kick at the division 1 level. I am a Pure Punter, but I can also kick if I need to. I averaged 46 yards per punt and my net average was 43, which means i only had 3 yards per return against me the last two years of punting. I punted 47 times the last two years and I had 31 insides the 20, 21 Inside the 10 and 9 Inside the 5. I also had just 3 touch backs and had a long of 76 and multiple punts 55-60+ yards the last two years. I can also play other positions too, I can run a 4.67 40, Bench 185 and Squat 315 and I have played Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Corner Back, Line Backer and I’ve also held over 30 PATs and I didn’t muff any snaps through that year.
