With many colleges looking for specific players with multiple skill sets, the NCS breaks down the athletes' skills deeper than anyone else in the industry.
San Diego (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
Utilizing the National Camp Series' new Kicking IndeX System (KIX), the National Camp Series 2012 Top Performers provide solid choices for college and university coaches looking for kicking specialist talent.
With its new KIX Player Rating System fully integrated, the NCS has categorized into skills sets that will allow Colleges and University football coaches to find the exact player to benefit their team.
Former NFL kicker Michael Husted who created the KIX system says, "When you are talking about $150,000 - $200,000 in scholarship money, being able to use analytics to help make an informed decision is a 'no-brainer'."
Husted adds the KIX system is the first, truly, objective player rating system in the kicking game. Utilizing over six years of historical statistics from their events, KIX crawls the results, both current (within a year) and historically, to assign a player rating.
Husted says “With many colleges looking for specific players with multiple skill sets, the NCS breaks down the athletes' skills deeper than anyone else in the industry.”
For the class of 2012, the player ratings for specific skills are:
- Field Goals
- Kick Offs
- Field Goals and Kick Offs
- Field Goals, Kick Offs and Punts (Combo Kicker)
- Long Snapping
Former NFL kicker Mike Hollis said, "During the past 4 years that Pro Form Kicking Academy has been an associate of the National Camp Series, and we have witnessed many great athletes who have taken advantage of the opportunity NCS offers."
Hollis adds, "Now, with the addition of the new "KIX" rating system, the athletes who participate in NCS events will be a part of the first 'objective' kicking rating system developed, of which college coaches will be able to see more realistic scores. The NCS is looking out for the best interest of all their athletes. Pro Form Kicking Academy is proud to be a part of this program!"
With the ability to capture and analyze statistics efficiently (Think Money Ball), the National Camp Series is positioned to become the leader in helping Colleges and Universities wisely selected the best specialists for their programs.
