He showed superior ball height, and will benefit by driving the ball (especially on kickoffs a bit more). On Page 2 is an side-by-side of Michael and Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, from our work with Butker this summer. Notice the foot position of Harrison’s foot compared to Michael’s. His heel is slightly higher and his laces face the ball more, which turns his knee downfield. Michael’s knee is facing the sideline. This is one reason why Harrison is currently the best kickoff specialists in the NFL! Michael can play college football somewhere, and I think it would benefit him to come to a showcase this December, as we’d like to see how he competes against his recruiting class. I can see him easily as a DII starter to a preferred walk-on DI kicker.&nbsp;His kickoffs must&nbsp;develop to be a scholarship Division 1 kicker- but I think he can get there if he puts in the work over the next 8 months. REALLY looking forward to seeing how he progresses between now and his senior season!" -Coach Bret</em>
