Independence senior Casey McGhee hopes to find a home in college football and on Sunday, the powerful right-footed kicker finished among the top five in the field goal competition at the Kornblue Kicking Camp in Dayton.
McGhee drilled 18-of-18 field goals tries from 50 yards and in.
“I’m feeling really good field goal-wise,” McGhee said. “I’ve been working hard this offseason.”
Brandon Kornblue, a former Michigan Wolverine and professional kicker, began operating his camp series in 2007 and has mentored and trained many of the nation’s top kickers and punters.
Among the Fab50 kickers for 2021 are 11 athletes who already have committed to Power 5 programs.
McGhee hopes to add his name to that list.
“Recently, I’ve been going to a couple of college showcases and prospect camps,” he said. “I’m just trying to get my name out there.”
McGhee already has kicked at Saginaw Valley State in Michigan and Youngstown State last weekend. He will attend Shaker Height’s showcase camp on Tuesday and will travel to Kansas State next weekend.
