Some of New England’s top kicking prospects came through in the clutch at the National Kicking Combine Series Boston Regional Event. Special Teams Solutions, headed by former Rutgers University and Arena Football kicker Lee McDonald, ran the event at Kraft Field (named after New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft who donated the field) in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Luke Faust of Roxbury Latin School (MA) showed a big leg on field goals among the class of 2010 kickers. Faust hit 7 of 10 kicks with a long of 52 yards off the ground and proved to be the best overall performer of the day after averaging 59 yards and 3.3 seconds hang time on kickoffs and 37 yards / 3.6 seconds hang time on punts. Erich Perfetti of Shrewsbury (MA) High School finished second by connecting on 6 of 10 field goals off the ground with a long of 39 yards. Brad Prasky of Groton High School (MA) displayed a strong leg on kickoffs by averaging nearly 58 yards and 3.4 seconds of hang time per kickoff. John Gardner of Darien High School (CT) was right there with a near 55 yard and 3.4 seconds hang time kickoff average. Among punters, Prasky averaged 38 yards and nearly 3.7 seconds hang time and Perfetti nearly 37 yards with 3.7 seconds hang time per punt. Arthur Azatyants of Brookline High School proved to be a solid punter as well by posting 35 yards and 3.8 seconds hang time per punt.

Among the class of 2011, Tim Weinclaw of Kellenberg High School (NY) proved consistent by hitting 8 of 10 field goals with a long of 52 yards off a two inch block. He also averaged 53 yards with 3.4 seconds hang time per kickoff. Joe Uglietto of the Governors Academy School (MA) turned over several punts and averaged 35 yards and 3.7 seconds hang time per kick. Class of 2012 kicker James Lincoln of Ocala High School (FL), a summer visitor to New England, was perfect on the day by hitting all ten field goals with a long of 42 yards. Lincoln also averaged 54 yards and 3.3 seconds hang time per kickoff.
