Good find. Here are some Hudl clips.
Right now, he's taking more steps before kickoffs than most top kickers do; but he's a sophomore and is doing whatever he is comfortable with, most likely. That's the sort of detail a kicking coach would sort out in a few sessions.
The Post's prep stats are not helpful, it shows he attempted two field goals and made three of them. Unlikely. No distances listed.
If correct, he does have good size: Height: 6 feet, 5 inches. Weight: 200
Also plays wide receiver. Could not find any reference that he also plays soccer, which is a little unusual for a H.S. kicker.
I found one game summary (From Oct. 7, 2014) with this mention:
What yard line do high school kickers kick from on kickoffs?
I don't think Westminster trusts their center/holder combo very much. Against Boulder, they went for two on every score except for the very last one, which the holder proceeded to fumble the ball.
Bettis has a cannon for a leg, though.
I'm pretty sure they kick from the 35, but I'm not 100% sure. Even if it's from the 40, kicking it through the upright is impressive for a sophomore.
Separate names with a comma.
