KCK Spotlight: Nick Walsh

KCK Spotlight
Nick Walsh
Class of 2012

Today I had the pleasure of working with 2010 Kansas All-State Kicker/Punter Nick Walsh. What a tremendous young talent with the potential to kick and punt at the next level. Nick showed me solid ball striking on his field goals with tremendous trajectory. Nick will definitely be a deep threat field goal kicker for his high school this season. 

The 6'0 180lbs kicker/punter made a big name for himself in 2010 by putting up 15 touchbacks and averaging 43.0 yards/punt. In my opinion, Nick's best attribute is his punting/kickoff combo. I clocked Nick at 4.5-4.7 seconds consistently today with nose over spirals reaching as far as 50 yards. In today's recruiting world, finding a punter that has the ability to kickoff at the college level is very rare. Nick will have an opportunity to punt in college somewhere and I think that this season will be a huge opportunity for Nick to gain some national recruiting exposure.
