Showcase For The Specialist
Junior kicker Mitchell Groh shows off his leg in competitions during the offseason, most recently, qualifying for the national showcase in Orlando, Florida.
Similar competitions are held in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas as well.
He was scored on distances and hang times on each kick, and scored in the top 10 percent of all of the participants in order to earn his spot.
His scores will be posted on Kohl’s website in January for college scouts to view and evaluate.
“He’s an insane athlete with an extraordinary work ethic. He’s always out on the field getting extra kicks up” football teammate Jacob Yoder said.
When Groh joined the football team, the coaching staff was impressed with his dedication.
Groh is grateful for the opportunity, stating, “it has helped me realize where I stand with the best in the country, and Florida will be an even bigger test of that.”
He has shown he can “kick it” into high gear and this weekend will look to get a “leg up” on some of the best specialists in the country.
