    As long as he can make a chip-shot for the win and we don't start calling him Will Wide-Reichard, he's good in my book

    Technically...they could award him one star for each toe on his kicking foot, but since he's only rated as a three-star, the recruiting services must've used a logarithm that deducted not one but two stars from 'Bama's suffering from excruciating Achilles Toe last year...

    Sailor is basically saying he deserves five-stars...

    Good enough!

    IOW, Will is getting great coaching.

    We watched this kid kick at the Spring Classic in Troy last weekend where Hoover beat Brookwood HS out of Snellville, GA. He is INCREDIBLE. Met his grandfather and talked to him for the entire second half of the game. Amazing family and this kid has one of those tear jerker stories that will be featured on Sports Center. He's been kicking like a pro since he was in 6th grade. Started the Chris Sailer camps back then. Sailer knew the moment he saw him he was special. Will and his dad had a special relationship and travelled to camps every summer together. When Will was a freshman in HS, they went to a camp in Dallas (I think that's what his grandad said). When they got home, his dad wasn't feeling well and went to the doctor. He was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and died 8 days later. I think Will stopped kicking for a period of time but realized that his dad would want him to go on and be the best he could be. It is a heart-wrenching story. I just teared up thinking about his granddad telling us the story. He kicked off, punted and did field goals/extra points in that Spring Game and looked like a senior in college. Perfect form and every single kickoff went 10 yards in the end zone. I think his granddad said that he has only had 2-3 kickoffs that didn't go into the end zone. He is the real deal, y'all. He won't have those issues adjusting to college football from HS. Can't wait for him to get to Bama!!

    Sounds like a special player. 73 yards is amazing. As long as we have a kicker who is accurate from 40-45 yards in, I'll be a happy camper.

    Don`t these kids routinely kick off the ground now in prep for college?
