LeCorre Named To KARE 11 All-Metro Preseason Football Team (2014)

Congratulations to K/P Patrick Lecorre of Edina High School for being named to the KARE 11 All-Metro Preseason Football Team here in MN.  That marks at least 3 years in a row one of our kickers was named to it!  Keep up the good work Patrick and good luck this year!  See the full of athletes list here.


Patrick is a very gifted kicker and punter and had earned his first kicking opportunity as a Freshman in the playoffs where he kicked the game winning field goal.  He has a number of division 1 football teams recruiting him and has a bight future ahead of him.  Edina High School's football team should be strong this year in Special Teams.

Patrick and I have been training together for 4 years now and I'm  excited to see how his Senior Year plays out.
