Orlando, FL (KAIT) - Jonesboro High junior kicker Luke Ferguson competed in the Kohl's Underclassman Challenge in Orlando, Florida earlier this month. Luke was the only punter/kicker attending from Arkansas. There were 58 elite kickers and punters from 2012 and 2013 classes from across the country invited to attend.
He performed very well in the national 2-day competition, ranking 5th in kickoff charting with a 70 yard average. Ferguson also ranked 6th in punting charting - averaging 41.7 yards, with a best of 55 yards/4.46 sec. hang time.
Luke is rated a 4.5-Star recruit for 2012 by Kohl's - as a true combo punter/kicker. Luke is hearing from several BCS schools, among others, based upon his 2010/11 Kohl's camp performances and football season results.
