Player Overview

A four-year starting punter for the Cyclones, Van Der Kamp was a Freshman All-American in 2010 with a 45.2 yard per punt average, which ranks second all-time in Iowa State history. He averaged 42.7 yards per punt as a sophomore, 41.0 as a junior and 41.6 as a senior, earning Second Team All-Big 12 honors in 2013. Van Der Kamp connected on 99 career punts inside the 20-yard line and 71 career 50-yarders. His 289 career punts is the most in Big 12 history.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Composed, confident and focused to block out his surroundings and focus on the punt. Smart with a good feel for technique and body leverage to get the most out of each snap. Long legs to generate torque from his swift punt motion. Athletic and has shown the ability to handle the football as a ballcarrier or pass ? 7-for-7 on 4th down conversions in his career (five rushes, two passes). Accustomed with weather and wind and knows how to get proper trajectory on his punts.

WEAKNESSES: Punt yardage average declined after stellar freshman season and lacks elite leg power. Can improve his process to get the ball punted, especially when snaps aren?t directly at him.
