Last years overall winner, Ryan Doerr of Katy signed a scholarship to the University of South Carolina. Many of these same college kickers return each year to assist with the competition.

Competition is held in punting, kickoffs, field goals, and deep snapping with each contestant completing a preliminary round of kicks or snaps and then the top eight advancing to the finals for head to head tournament competition. Kickoff and Field Goal competition are held on Friday and Punting and Snapping on Saturday morning.
