Personal comments from Kyle-- 

COMMITTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF DAYTON

THANK YOU for viewing my profile.
I am an effective directional punter, a very accurate placekicker, and hit hard with solid tackling ability (also played DE for our team). That is a big advantage to have a punter who can tackle. I look forward to playing for the Flyers, mostly as a punter.

2009 JUNIOR YEAR SKILLS VIDEO:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4qPYdy1AVw

This (7 min, 20 sec) 18-play game video has punting (7 clips; about 3 min), placekicking (6 clips; 2:45), and then defense/special teams (5 clips; 1:30). The clips show directional punting skills with punts angled both left/right, as well as to both the wide/short side of the field. The placekicking clips show FGs/PATs from all 4 camera angles: behind me, in front of me, and from my left/right side to better show my kicking form/technique. The last kicking clip is a kicker-recovered center-onside kick that helped spark a big comeback (Note: The official initially points the wrong way but then corrected himself). I also play defensive end with these clips showing tackles made at the LOS and a QB sack (from right DE position). (Note: the first tackling clip is repeated due to a glitch when copied). The final play (#18) is me blocking an opponent's punt, coming from the left side.

Helpful FYI:

Athletic and 2nd Generation Punter/Kicker:
I have played many sports (still play H.S. baseball: pitcher/infield). My dad was a P/K in college and is a kicking instructor for Dayton area H.S. players & teams. I have kicked since grade school!

Honors received:  


(1) My biggest highlights are by angling our punts, we repeatedly hurt the other teams starting field position (by essentially removing their top punt returners from the game).
(2) Also, I have also converted 7 kicker-recovered "center onside kicks," by tapping the ball to myself. (Teams just do not expect it!!)

ADDITIONAL CONTENT

Favorite Kicker or Punter: Mike Nugent . He went to same high school as my dad (and as Kirk Herbstreit and A.J. Hawk too). He is a solid kicker, is easy to talk with, and helps out at kid camps.
