(Schurr High School, Montebello, CA)—Our first field production for 2020, features a very unique outreach appeal to football players that are interested in getting better at their craft. It is one that has been designed to offer FREE Football Camps for Special Teams kickers/punters, place-kickers, and long snappers. Our special program features an excellent look at, and behind the scenes of what specialists do in their workouts as they are mentored by the Camp Director and his volunteer coaches.
The principal character in our feature is its Creator, Founder, and Director, Vicente Peña. He is an alumnus of Wilson High School (L.A.) and lettered in varsity football, both as the team’s “Combo” punter and placekicker. He received the Mules’ Special Teams Player of the Year in his Senior year. He then moved on to play at East L.A. College where he earned a starting spot as the “Combo” kicker for the Huskies and in so doing, set (2) school records while breaking a total of (4). After he graduated with his Associate of Arts (AA) Degree in 2016, he was offered a full athletic scholarship to attend Lane College in Tennessee. He quickly became the team’s starting “Combo” kicking specialist. During his time at Lane, he kicked a 51 yard field goal and was responsible for a game-winning field goal in another.
