McDonald signed a full scholarship to Rutgers University from where he earned a B.A. and M.Ed.
The former Scarlet Knight is known for his 1999 game winning overtime field goal that upset the Syracuse Orangemen 24-21. McDonald also garnered Special Teams Player of the Week honors twice during his career and was twice named to the Big East Conference Academic Team.
McDonald then kicked for the Buffalo Destroyers of the Arena Football League and the Norfolk Nighthawks where he set several Arena 2 football kicking records including most field goals in one game (6) that earned him AF2 Player of the Week honors.
Titus walked-on at Rutgers University and earned a full scholarship after becoming the starting punter. He graduated from Rutgers with a B.A. in 2000 and finished his career with a 41.9 yard average on 155 career punts.
In 1998, Titus was honored by the Big East Conference as the Special Teams Player of the Week after averaging 51.4 yards on three punts during a Scarlet Knight victory over the Naval Academy.
In addition to training with All-Pro NFL punters Sean Landetta and Josh Miller, Titus had several private try-outs for NFL teams including the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Stealers.
Michael Husted, who created the National Camp Series (NCS) after kicking in the NFL for 9 years, says having kicking coaches like McDonald and Titus 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 coaches like McDonald and Titus as part of the NCS team.
“Both McDonald and Titus are excellent kicking coaches,” says Husted. “Both helped me with the NCS Super Camp in Florida earlier this year. I’ve enjoyed working with them on all their NCS events in 2012.”
"2012 shaped up to be the best year yet for the National Camp Series,” says Husted. “Having introduced our Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, we are now positioned extremely well in 2013 to leverage analytics to showcase our athletes, and to provide ‘objective high school kicking specialist’s 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."
