Determination drives Blue Gators' kicker Peyton Woodring to No. 1 national ranking

The Acadiana Advocate
Ascension Episcopal’s Peyton Woodring grew up playing soccer and admits starring as a football player was never a thought, let alone a dream. In fact, Woodring had no plans of playing high school football for the Blue Gators, despite being known for his toughness as a receiver, defensive end, and safety in three years of middle school ball.

“I didn’t really enjoy it that much in middle school,” said Woodring, who has a 4.0 grade average and scored a 28 on his ACT. As his freshman season arrived, Woodring learned the Blue Gators needed a kicker. Considering his soccer background, he had a change of heart and joined the team.
