California HS kicker says hello to UNC fans

To all the Carolina Fans. My name is Justin Medlock (6'0 180) and I'm from Fremont,CA. I've been a fan of UNC since I was little and a diehard fan since 7th grade.

This year I plan to kick off ground because I want to get ready for college. My junior season started out like this. My first game I was 2/3 on touchbacks with 2 through the uprights. Then my second game I was 5 for 5 on touchbacks and was 3 for 4 on field goals but the one I missed was an attempt from over 50 yards and the holder botched the snap. Then the night before my third game my dad died and did really horrible the next 3 to 4 games  but after that I did alright. This year I have no distractions. 

My junior stat's:   

7-13 on field goals (long 66, all misses came from 50 and beyond)

17-23 of kickoffs through the end zone 29-30 PAT'S (one got blocked). I also punt, but have no stats. Sorry.

All-League and All-County honors for both kicking and punting .Longest field goal off a one inch tee 66 yards last year. Longest field goal off the ground 63 yards.

Here's how I did at my camps this summer:  Oregon: punts ranged from 4.2 to 4.6 and I on l missed one field goal. UCLA: kickoffs of 70, 75, and 80 yards. My punts were clocked as high as 4.9. Made 39/40 field goals. California: My kickoffs went from 70 yards. We also did field goals but we just went to 55 yards off the ground because one person couldn't go any further. UNC:  I won the longest kickoff and longest punt.

My punts were about 4.5 to 4.8 and ranged between 50 to 60 yards. My kickoffs were as short as 65 to as long as 80 yards. After the camp I got a scholarship offer from UNC so I pretty happy about that. 

Schools considering:

UNC, UCLA, STANFORD (doubtful only a 3.3 gpa and 1120 SAT), OREGON, OREGON ST., WASHINGTON.

I have two offers so far  (UNC and one other that I'd prefer not to mention) I wanted to make my decision by the end of the summer but I'm going to hold off because I want to see the UNC (campus, not just athletics) again. I plan to take my official visit November 16-18. I always dreamed of going to a basketball game and the football team plays Dook that weekend.

I hate Dook. If I had to choose today, I would pick UNC. But I love California and I'm a California kid. A friend of mine who used to live in Chapel Hill said the nearby beaches are wonderful and I love the beach.
