JANUARY 9, 2008 – SAN DIEGO, CA - Former Minnesota Vikings kicker and the second leading scorer in Boston College football history and current San Diego Shockwave kicker (NIFL) John Matich, announced today that The Kicking System will open their 2008 Annual Tour of camps on January 20 at La Jolla Country Day School in San Diego. Matich and his professional staff of football coaches will host the one-day College Exposure Camp to open their 5th annual tour that will host the top football kickers in the country. 

Matich originally from Southern Californian, grew up in San Diego. He also was a former soccer standout that played with the U17 and U20 youth national soccer teams as part of the La Jolla Nomads. Matich kicked at Mira Mesa HS and then received a full scholarship from Boston College in 1995.     

Southern California has always been a hotbed for recruiting kicking talent, but this year's list of participating players in San Diego includes kickers from all across the country.  

The 2008 January camp in San Diego will be headlined by several local standouts that include: David Seawright (Rancho Bernardo HS) – San Diego Country All-CIF Kicker of the Year, (Offfers from Air Force, Princeton, Harvard); Trevor Whiddon (RBV HS) – 2nd Team All-North County; Lee Abelkop – CA State finalist for Kicker of the Year; and Kicker Travis Golia (La Jolla Country Day) – currently committed to Stanford University

Coach Matich and The Kicking System have gained a national reputation from many top college football programs as arguably the most elite football kicking development system in the county. Travis Golia (La Jolla Country Day School – San Diego) - the top kicking prospect in the class of 2007 in San Diego- has been working with coach Matich since he was a sophomore. Matich visited Stanford with Golia and his family to personally meet with the football program's staff, and helped Travis gain in-depth insight regarding the recruiting process. "Coach Matich is a master-mind with kicking and the recruiting process," said Golia.

In addition, The Kicking System also announced a partnership with SPORTSTV Combines ( that will allow player video footage to streamed online, in order to enhance the players' exposure.
