Kingwood's Jonathan LaCour is a kicker in an athlete's body.
LaCour (6-foot-2, 190 pounds) is causing more sonic booms around nearby Bush Intercontental Airport than the hundreds of planes that shuttle over Kingwood on a daily basis.
After winning the Randy Rogers' Lone Star Kicking Camp as a sophomore, LaCour hit the recruiting radar with his explosive leg. His stock also rose after hitting a 54-yard field goal during his junior season and leading his district in punt average. Since then, the first-team, all-district dual kicker has been receiving mail from across the country.
"He's special," Kingwood coach Dougald McDougald said. "He just crushes the ball. He's a terrific punter and hits his kick offs eight to 10 yards deep every time.
"He's a very accurate field-goal kicker with distance and a very good safety for our special teams," he said. "If he wasn't a kicker, he could be a great position player."
LaCour's early favorite is LSU and Tiger special teams' coach Bradley Dale Peveto is recruiting the decorated kicker.
"I think he's got family from there," McDougald said. "If he had 50 offers from across the country and LSU was one of them, he'd pick LSU. He's always loved that school.
"He hasn't been offered yet and I'm surprised," he said. "I think before the end of spring he'll have some."
LaCour also stars on the Kingwood soccer team, which reached the playoffs this spring.
