Specialists Camp Recognitions:
I attended the national Chris Sailer kicking camp in Charlotte, NC in October and was recognized as the 2018 NC Fall Camp Punt Champion – with 2 punts greater than 60 yards, both with 4.8+ hang time. My player review from Chris Sailer is as follows:
Collin is an excellent punting and kicking prospect. A great looking athlete with strong natural ability. He does an outstanding job punting the football. He averages 40+ yards, with 4.4+ hang time. He also shows the ability to hit 50+ yard punts with 5.0+ yard hang time. Also a talented kicker. He hits a nice ball on field goal off the ground at times. He also drives the ball deep on kickoffs with 4.0+ hang time. He is a competitor that does very well under pressure. There is great upside here. Collin should dominate his senior season and turn the heads of college coaches. He is going to make a great addition to any college football team. Strong combo prospect.
During the summer of 2018, I attended Specialists Camps at 1) NCSU, 2) WFU, 3) Duke – where I placed 2nd in their punt competition and 4) ECU – where I placed 1st in their punt competition
