|U. of Tennessee Commitment Aaron Medley|
This has been an incredible year for James Wilhoit Kicking as 5 kicking specialists have already committed to Division 1 schools, all 3 of the Mr. Football Kicker of the Year Finalists in Tennessee are long time Wilhoit Clients, and my top 2 kickers were selected for the Under Armour All American Game.
Wilhoit kickers are raking in the offers and the accolades for the 2014 class. I have never seen or heard of a better class of kickers in the state of Tennessee that is more talented than this class. Aaron Medley committed to Tennessee earlier this Summer after offers from Oklahoma and Texas A&M. Growing up a Tennessee fan was too much to pass up for Aaron. Now he is getting ready to be a Vol and I couldn't be happier that he is carrying on the Tennessee kicking tradition.
|Ole Miss Commitment Gary Wunderlich|
Gary Wunderlich has been a kicking client since he was an incoming freshman at MUS. I will never forget when he was frustrated as a freshman because he wasn't kicking off far enough and now he is arguably the best kickoff guy in the country. He committed to Virginia earlier this Spring but an offer from Ole Miss changed his mind in the end. He will be quite an asset to the Rebels and his versatility will be huge. There are not many in the nation that can be a Top 5 kicker, punter, and kickoff guy. Special talent!
|Wisconsin Commitment Rafael Gaglianone|
Two years ago I remember working with Rafael Gaglianone over the Baylor School in Chattanooga, TN. I trained both he and his teammate, U. of Tennessee Chattanooga kicker, Henrique Ribeiro. At the time I was overwhelmed by Rafael's size and athleticism. I knew he would be a major Division 1 kicker right away. After polishing up his technique with 2 days of One on One Kicking Lessons in Tennessee I told him he had the ability to be great.
Rafael placed a close second at LSU, Clemson, Arkansas, and Ohio State & when he committed to Wisconsin I was excited and also relieved. He deserved to play big time football. If Rafael continues to keep training hard he will have a chance to compete for an NFL roster spot. He hit a 57 yarder in 30 degree weather against Ensworth this year.
|Mississippi State Commitment Logan Cooke|
It is very rewarding seeing kickers reach their dreams. The 2014 class still has a long ways to go and I expect even a few more kickers to compete for scholarships. Pretty soon it will be on to the 2015 class though and helping them reach their dreams. Kickers around the country should start to watch out because Wilhoit kickers are looking to dominate the state and now the country!
