Week 1- Special Teams Players of the Week (2015)

Our Player of the Week posts are designed to recognize the top kicking, punting and long snapping performances of the week in Minnesota at the High School Level.  We'd also like to recognize the top performances of some of our student athletes that we've helped train at the Collegiate and High School Level from across the US.

In the first full week of play for Minnesota high school football programs, we saw a lot of great performances. There were a number of stand out performances, but nothing stood out more than Aaron Salmon of Cleveland High School in MN.  Aaron kicked 10 PATs which made him the top kicking point scorer in Minnesota.

Top Punter of the week was Mac Brown of St Thomas Academy.  He had 6 punts for 248 yards and a 41.33 yard average.
