Paul Assad, Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting comments: Has strength and speed and should be a good kicker for the Hornets. Gets the ball up quick and has range past 55 yds. Was an outstanding HS kicker known for kick off power and medium range field goals. Has been kicking with Coach Assad since soph. year in High School locally.
UPDATED SEPT. 2010:
BIG SKY HONORS
Sacramento State’s Chris Diniz made four field goals, hitting from 50, 42, 28 and 34 yards. He became the first Hornet kicker to make four fied goals since Bret LeVier made four against Weber State on Nov. 16, 2002.
UPDATE JULY 5TH 2009: Looks lots stronger and mature. Kicking off better and showed long range field goal ability. Showed off some really strong punts as well. Player to watch mature - potential pro prospect if he can kick the medium to longer field goals and kick off's in the games. Would like to see him keep his head and torso up and kick more to the front upward thru field goals and kick off's. Crushed some big kickoff's and punts at workouts today.
HIGH SCHOOL: Escalon Cougars All District Kicker. Game winner in Sectional championship.
Personal: Brother Jason Diniz, Escalon HS - K
is an outstanding college prospect and youngest brother Thomas looks to be a good one too just approaching 8th grade.
