In conjunction with the National Football Foundation San Bernardino County Chapter - the Snap-Hold & Kick program conducted a kicking combine this past Thursday, and exhibited why the Inland Empire is producing some of the top kickers in the nation.

Position MVP's as selected by the camp organizers included:

QB - Blake Loncar - Los Osos HS, Brehaut's backup, 6'4" strong arm
RB - Anthony Brown - Kaiser HS
WR - Trey Coleman - Rialto HS, impressed, caught everything
OL - BJ Sonboli - Los Osos HS
LB - Chris Kilmer - Serrano HS, kid was all over the field
DL - Giovanni Herrera - San Bernardino HS
DB - Dionza Bradford - Serrano HS, best all- around athlete
K - Alejandro Maldonado - Colton HS- just missed from 65 yards, lone kickoff 78-yards (kid has a cannon for a foot)

The Kicking Combine included the following highlights:

Kicking MVP of the Combine: Alejandro Maldonado, Colton HS - exhibited that he can kick with any kicker in the nation, had one kickoff that traveled 78 yards and out of the endzone, and was just wide on a field goal attempt from 65-yards. The kid was kicking with a one inch tee, and has a cannon for a leg.

Jake Van Ginkel: Recognized on a Sophomore All-American Team, but he also was named Maxpreps 1st team all-state. This was Jake's first time at a Snap-Hold Kick sponsored event.

Chance Simmon, Norco: Lights out, one of several kickers who impressed.

Ryan Felix, Santiago: Another Riverside County newcomer, expect to hear this kids name listed among the upcoming kickers in the state.

Mix these kids names in with Trevor Romaine from Centennial, and the Inland Empire has to be considered one of the best - if not the best, kicker producing region in the nation.

Punters: Top performers were Jimmi Chester - San Gorgonio HS and Robbie Centeno Santiago HS.

Snappers: Robbie Horrell, Rancho Cucamonga HS, no secret here great technique, and Kristian Castellanos, AB Miller
