Personal comments from Ross-- Kicking
| As a Sophomore I began KICKING OFF THE GROUND and Kickoff with a 1" College Kickoff Tee. I became the 1ST NJ High School Kicker in almost 60 years to kick off the ground my Junior season. The highlights of my Freshman year were coming in 1ST Place in the Kicking.com National Championship Jr. Division and not missing an Extra Point in the 2006 season. Highlights of my Sophomore Year were Breaking the School Record with 9 Field Goals in the 2007 Season -the last one a Game Winner with 2 seconds left against our arch rival in the Thanksgiving Game. I do Strength training all year round at Defranco's Training Systems 3x a week and receive personal training from Joe DeFranco who has trained NFL players from all 32 NFL Teams I also train with Lee McDonald, former All American and Rutgers Kicker and Director of Special Teams Solutions, as well as NY Giants Kicker Lawrence Tynes. My brother Ricky, a former HS All American and Rivals #8 Kicker in 2002,has been a tremendous influence on me both on the field and in the classroom.|
