Kai Forbath is rated the #1 Punter in the Country by Scout.com. A First-Team
All-American as a junior, Kai is the best place kicker in the nation, going
19-of-21 from field goals as a junior and kicking 73 PAT's. Forbath has made a verbal commitment to play for UCLA.
"It is a great pleasure to have this fine young man selected to represent
his school and community as a U.S. Army All-American," said Colonel Thomas
Nickerson, Director of Strategic Outreach for the U.S. Army Accessions Command.
"He has proven himself to be a superior athlete who, like our Soldiers,
takes pride in making a difference and turning in outstanding performances.
"Our slogan, 'An Army of One,' recognizes the strength of the individual
in achieving team goals. Kai demonstrates how football, like the Army, makes you
a stronger person not just for today, but into the future. A national audience
will see this when he takes the field in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl,"
said Col. Nickerson.
Forbath is a standout kicker at Notre Dame High School and was one of 400
players nominated nationally and one of 78 selected to participate by the U.S.
Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.
