Ever seen a 6-5, 270 lb. kicker? Now you have. Ryan Santoso made his ESPN debut yesterday during the Under Armour All-America Game and stole our hearts. The kid is committed to Minnesota, is from Florida (Pace H.S.) and said to be the biggest kicker/punter at any level of football; Sebastian Janikowski is listed at 6-1, 258.
According to his Kohl’s Kicking Camp profile, Santoso has “great natural rhythm on FG, hits a great ball off the ground.” The camp claims he hit an 80-yard kickoff and his field goals off the ground a “BCS level.”
As for his performance in the Under Armour game, our new kicking hero nailed a 44-yarder and missed two other attempts at Tropicana Field.
And Santoso during the week next to the other Under Armour game kicker. (via @RMCx2)
The best hit from the game? This from Matthew Thomas on Michigan QB recruit Shane Morris.
