The STS "Top 25" rankings, consisting of 25 high school, prep or junior college specialists from across the northeast, represent the professional opinion of our staff from camps, training and events held throughout the year.  STS considers a prospect's technique, leg strength/snap speed, poise (ability to perform under pressure), size, athleticism, character and potential at the next level.   Game film is also evaluated and considered.  While our rankings are subjective, camp charting and competition performance weigh heavily in our assessments.  Since 2003, we have trained and evaluated thousands of specialists with more than 300 of our prospects moving on to the college level.  STS is a valued, reputable resource and the authority on specialists for DI, DII and DIII college programs in the northeast.  Recruiting coordinators and special teams coaches annually await our prospect list to help fulfill their kicking, punting and snapping needs.  College coaches wishing to receive additional prospect information should contact us at or 732-406-6409.  Rankings and ratings are subject to change per camp performance and are updated twice a year following our summer and fall camps.  Prospect ratings are out of 5 stars.
