"I played wide receiver a few times. I am basically concentrating on kicking. In the one game that I played at wide out I had 105 yards in two receptions. My three receptions as a WR for the year were 59, 47 and 36 yards. On those plays I was running fly patterns and just beat the defense.
My stats from a combine I went to were: 10 yard dash 1.5; 20 yards shuttle 4,28; 60 yards shuttle 12.03; bench press 230; standing broad jump of 9 fee1 inch. I am also a swimmer. I was an all state swimmer as a freshmen and three time all state.
I am getting 3.7 to 4.2 seconds in hang time on my punt. I'll average about 50-55 yards in the air. I kicked 85 per cent of my kickoffs into the end zone. Many of them I kicked out of the end zone in the air.
This year I'll be working on kicking off the dirt (in high school kickers kick off of tees, in college they kick off the dirt) I know how to do it, it is just something that I am working on to perfect."
Gerry will be a full qualifier. He is noted for having a great work ethic.
"I'll do things over and over until I get it right. Kicking is something that I like to do and something that I just want to do right."
"I'll definitely be going to a few camps but I am unsure of which ones at this time."
