San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2012
After a long summer of kicking camps, several kickers, punters and long snappers had solid results at National Camp Series (NCS) events all across the continent in hopes of carrying their performances into the football season.
High School Specialists from all over the country put up impressive numbers which should help to land them on college radars. 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."
