Massillon's high powered offense primarily scored touchdowns this season, but when the Tigers stalled, they turned to sophomore kicker Andrew David for long field goal attempts.
David, 5-foot-9, 165-pounds, made a name for himself as a starter as a freshman, when he connected on 4 of 5 attempts over 40 yards, including a 46-yarder. As a sophomore, he hit on 7 field goals with the longest being 45 yards. His kickoffs regularly reach the end zone.
"My technique is good and I have a strong leg, but my confidence would be my greatest strength," David stated. "When I get into a game situation, I just trust that I have prepared correctly, and then it's just executing the kick."
"I'm working on adding strength in my legs, and I constantly work on flexibility," he added. "I work with Chris Nednick, out of Chicago, and he's a great instructor. He kicked at the college level, and is one of the best teachers out there."
Although only a sophomore, David is already attracting attention from college recruiters.
"I've spoken to Ohio State and I was invited down for the Purdue game this year," he explained. "I've also been up to Michigan a couple times. My coach tells me there are schools that want me to come and kick for them next summer, but I don't have my schedule set yet."
