My name is Rasmus Dinesen, and I am in the class of 2017. My primary postion is Kicker and named 1A All State football team in Idaho, but I also play Punter, Linebacker and Running back. I'm an foreign exchange student from Denmark and this my first year kicking. Though is my first year kicking I can kick 75-80 yards kickoff, kicks 60 yard field goals, my record in a game is 51 yards in the rain. 90% + of all kickoffs that weren't an onside went into the end-zone. 1 kickoff went thru the uprights. We didn't score a lot but all of our extra points I kicked were at 100% accuracy.
Quote from my Coach Russell Burnum:
"He is a foreign exchange student who came to America to fulfill his dream of going to college and playing American football. One of the hardest working kids i have ever coached in my 25+ years of coaching. Stayed after practice on a regular basis to work on punting and kicking. Can punt with either leg. Can hit from 60 yards with decent consistency with his right leg & 40 yards with his left leg. Is hitting 6 out of ten from 50 yards. Can onside with his opposite foot while running up to kick with his right. This is one you would have to see to believe. Currently, due to hard work after the season, is able to kick 80 yards in the air. He is working on college kick offs. Squats 335 lbs. I can't imagine there is a better kicker in any division then him. He was also our best defensive player in 5 1/2 games he had 87 tackles 11 for losses 4 caused fumbles 2 fumble recoveries and 2 interceptions."
I have two big goals, football and education. Since I'm an foreign exchange student and comes from a small town. It will not only make me proud to get a good college education and play college football, but it will also make my family and the people in my town proud. Therefore I am always working to improve my skills.
I want to attend a college where I can push myself in the classroom and on the football field. I am open to all options and want to ultimately find the right college match at the highest level of competition possible.
