In an unprecedented move, of sorts, our brand has partnered with KCKicking and its mastermind NFL veteran Jeff Wolfert to offer what many consider to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for specialists hoping to secure a roster spot for the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl.
After stints with four teams at the highest level, and a decorated career in the NCAA Division I ranks with Missouri, Wofert will instruct the country’s premier prospects at the invite-only National Kicking Combine on June 27 at Wilemon Football Stadium in Arlington (TX).
No more than 10 recruits from that workout, in fact, qualify for the Blue-Grey Super Combine at Dallas Cowboys’ AT& T Stadium on June 28. A skills testing challenge takes place thereafter, not far from the iconic star positioned at the 50-yard line. Click here for more details.
By day’s end, multiple prospects will have earned the right to play in one of two upcoming Blue-Grey All-American Bowls: December at the same Lone Star State facility and home of Jerry Jones, or, in January at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium.
Along with exposure associated that’s with being involved with Blue-Grey Football and KCKicking, specialists (kickers, punters, etc.) will have a chance to prove themselves in front of coaches and scouts to a national audience on Fox Sports and the Impact Football Network.
In terms of credibility, Wolfert, has plenty of it. Connections at the collegiate level, too. We are, after all, talking about one of the best in the business during his particular era. He finished his career as one of the NCAA’s all-time most accurate with a 94.9 conversion rate.
The next stop was the NFL, naturally. The Chicago Bears offered him a shot. Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons and the New York Jets also gave Wolfert the all-important opportunity to prove himself. Then, at long last, he signed a contact the Cleveland Browns in 2011.
After his playing days were done, Wolfert turned his attention toward giving back to the game. Accordingly, KCKicking was established. Fast forward to present day, given the merger, the nation’s specialists now have a clear path to play in Blue-Grey All-American Bowl.
