Warsaw (Ind.) coach Phil Jensen refers to kicker Andrew Mevis as “an unbelievable weapon.”
Now, he can also formally call him an Under Armour All-American.
Mevis received his honorary jersey Thursday when the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance came to his school for a ceremony in front of family, friends and teammates.
Mevis earned his spot with his showing at the National Scholarship Camp in July conducted by Kohl’s Kicking Camp, which helps select the showcase’s specialists.
Behind his strong leg, Mevis also put almost all his kickoff attempts into the endzone and also has been stellar with directional punting.
“He can place it pretty much where he wants on punts or kickoffs,” Jensen told the News-Sentinel. “He has tremendous distance.”
Michigan State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Cincinnati and Bowling Green are among the schools interested.
“He’s a tremendous athlete,” Jensen told the News-Sentinel. “He would have been a great linebacker or slot receiver. He’s really fast. You combine that with a great work ethic and the fact he’s extremely smart — he has over an 11.0 GPA on a 12-point scale — and that’s an impressive combination no matter what position you play.”
The Under Armour game is Jan. 1 in Orlando on ESPN.
