    What's the point of this thread? I get he's a SO. and already a very accomplished kicker, but other than to hype him and him alone...? I must be missing something. Doesn't seem there is anything here to discuss.

    Just cause a kid can kick doesn't mean he will get a scholarship. Their are plenty of kids nationewide that can kick and maybe at most 5 out of thousands will get a scholarship to play in college and most of the rest that end up playing in college walk on to a team. Get the fact straight.

  • justkickit Nov 19, 2011

  • 3forme Nov 8, 2011

    If a kid can kick he can get a scholarship...

  • justkickit Nov 8, 2011

    sstourist 74:
    I can see how you might reach that conclusion, but I will assure you that you're mistaken.
    Kickers are like life jackets, nobody thinks much about them until they are needed.
    Hopefully the team you support has one that will be there for you when he is needed the most.

    Stop creating new profiles and adding more junk to the forum. Nobody cares about kickers.

  • justkickit Nov 6, 2011

    We are anxious to host Northeastern, as your easily team knocked us out last year in the 3rd round of the playoffs in Elizabeth City. I believe we saw your kicker Sunshine at the Rocky Mount camp early this summer. He was a tall, lean athlete, and a very capable kicker. Have a safe trip here, see you Friday!

    can't wait to see how good he is,we will be coming up from eliz city,to watch northeastern play you guys,i dont think will win but anything could happen. we also have a really good kicker in brandon "sunshine" swain,who has been to kicking camps in the off season,and will definately be playing for someone in college

  • grammy27520 Nov 5, 2011

    What a kicker! He is so awesome to watch. I get so excited watching his team play and enjoy being at the games. It is rare he misses a kick, has had only a couple blocked all season and his punts are incredible! The only thing I can add is....He makes me proud! Keep going Freeman and someday I'll bet you get a scholarship. Truly amazing.

  • justkickit Nov 5, 2011

    First round of playoffs: powered a 38yd FG through a heavy crosswind, 4 of 5 PAT (1 blocked), 1 touchback. Now 64 of 67 PAT (3 blocked), 10 touchbacks. Advances to 2nd round.
