MAX PRESPS 2010 season statistics

More press:  PREP COLORADO Miles MacKenzie of Denver East. MacKenzie, also a dual threat punter/kicker, has had 17 of 18 kickoffs end as touchbacks. MacKenzie's strong leg especially on kickoffs may be his most recruit able trait. He has also hit field goals of 45 and 47 yards this season to go with 12 of 12 on PATs, MacKenzie is also a key component of the Denver East soccer team so his fall is very full. That schedule hit its max recently as he missed a football game to play in a soccer tournament in Missouri.

Both of these kickers, playing in run oriented offenses, will have numerous opportunities to make kicks that will help propel their teams to wins. If they split the uprights enough times college programs will take notice.

“A&B has helped my son make the most out of his high school football experience. Being a great athlete must include being a good student and citizen. A&B helps athletes realize their potential as players and as people.” - Amie MacKenzie (mother of Miles)

Favorite Quote: “…I firmly believe that any man’s finest hours – his greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear – is that moment when he has worked his heart out in good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.”

Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm, Chapter 23 -

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
