San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
Todd Covington All-Star Kicking hosted a successful National Camp Series (NCS) evaluation event for high school kickers, punters and snappers in Williamsburg, Virginia, according to kicking coach Camp Director Todd Covington.
With over 20 years of kicking experience within the high school ranks, collegiate and professional level, Todd Covington played his college football at Hampton University as a four year starter as a kicker and punter.
Covington finished his career as one of the top three kickers/punters in school history and is the holder of several school records, as well as being named to several all-conference and all-state honors.
Covington’s football career continued with NFL tryouts with Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Buffalo Bills. He was recently nominated for the 2011 Virginia Hall of Fame.
Michael Husted, who created the National Camp Series (NCS) after kicking in the NFL for 9 years, says having kicking coaches like Covington attests to the quality of coaches at NCS events.
“NCS Associates are some of the best kicking coaches in the country,” says Husted. “NCS coaches provide the highest quality instruction to high school kicking specialists around the country.”
Husted says he is very happy to have a kicking coach like Todd Covington as part of the NCS team.
“Todd Covington is an excellent kicking coach,” says Husted. “He helped me with the NCS Super Camp in Florida earlier this year. I’m looking forward to working with him on all his NCS events in 2012.”
Husted says he is excited about the NCS season starting again so soon after a very successful NCS Super Camp in Orlando, Florida in February.
"2012 has shaped up to be the best year yet for the National Camp Series,” says Husted. “After a strong 2011, and having introduced our Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, we are positioned extremely well to leverage analytics to showcase our athletes, and to provide ‘objective high school kicking specialists statistics' to college and university coaches.”
Husted says that by utilizing its Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, NCS provides an objective evaluation platform for student-athletes who want to showcase their capabilities to colleges and universities for recruiting purposes.
By sorting through over six years of historical event data, the KIX system determines a kicker’s rankings by cross-referencing player data to determine how the athletes stack up against others, both presently and historically.
"The NCS levels the playing field for those who don't want to get caught up in all of the 'politics' that occurs in the kicking industry,” says Husted. “If you can kick, punt or snap, the NCS KIX system will let a young kicking specialist’s skills speak for themselves. No excuses. No explanations."
