One KICKING CHAMPION, one PUNTING CHAMPION, & one SNAPPING CHAMPION will be named for each grade level (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors).
The KICKING CHAMPION will be crowned based on the combination of FG and Kickoff points. Punting and kickoffs will be charted first. Field goals will be the last event.
First, all kickers will be charted on five kickoffs. The best four will be scored. Hangtime will not be factored into the scoring, but will be charted for recruiting purposes.
A kick between 50-59 yards = 1 point
A kick between 60-69 yards = 2 points
A kick of 70+ yards = 3 points
The field goal competition will be double elimination. Every kicker will start with a PAT with a snap and hold. Thereafter, kicks will be attempted alternating left and right hash. The order is 30 – LH, 30 – RH, 35 – LH, 35 – RH, etc. Kickers move on to the next attempt until they have missed twice. Each made kick = 1 point.
The kickoff and field goal points will be added. The kicker with the highest point total in each grade level will be named “kicking champion.”
The PUNTING CHAMPION is determined by the combination of distance and hangtime. Distance is measured from the line of scrimmage, NOT where the punter kicks the ball. Punters are lined up 14 yards behind the line of scrimmage. 8 punts will be recorded. The hangtime is multiplied by 10 and added to the distance for each kick. The points for each kick are added for the total score. (i.e. A punt has a hangtime of 3.9 seconds with a distance of 60 yards. The points for that kick would be (10 x 3.9) + 60 = 99. Punters with the top 10 point totals will advance to a final round and punt 5 more each. The punter with the highest overall point total in each grade level will be named the “Punting Champion.”
The LONG SNAPPING CHAMPIONS are determined by a point system which combines accuracy and velocity. Snappers will be timed in the 40 yard dash and those times will be posted to the athlete’s Fab 50 profile but the times will not factor into scores to determine the event champions.
