The Punting Competition saw a tremendous display of talent with former St John Bosco PK and current USC Punter Reid Budrovich pulling through with the win over Griff Amies (CDM/Rocky Mountain College) in the final. Reid showed his ability with his best ball of 47 yards/4.8 ht and another of 46 yards/4.6 ht. Amies, who always does well in the FG competition, surprised everyone by qualifying for the final with a big punt of 53 yards/4.3 ht.
The most consistent punter of the day was Ryan Stonehouse (Mater Dei) with a 44 yard ave/4.35 ht ave. and was the #1 Seed heading into the elimination bracket, but was knocked off by Harrison Avila (Laguna Hills) who hit the best punt of the day, 53 yards/4.5 ht to beat Stonehouse. Harrison has shown he has All County potential as both a kicker and punter. Stonehouse had a best punt of 47 yards/4.7 ht. Look for him to be a top recruit this Fall and one of the better punters on the West Coast.
Other punters who had big numbers and advanced to the elimination rounds were:
Hayden McGinnis (Tesoro/Boise St) - 49 yards/4.5 ht
Kyle Coale (Palos Verdes/Western Ill) - 46 yards/4.4 ht
Daniel Bjurman (CDM/OCC) - 41 yards/4.9 ht
