    University of Washington recruit Cameron Van Winkle set a state record for career field goals on Friday night while helping unbeaten Mount Si (Snoqualmie, Wash.) to a 51-0 football victory over Lake Washington (Kirkland, Wash.)

    The 5-foot-10, 160-pound senior kicked a 30-yard field goal to give him a state-record 34 (five this year) during his outstanding career, according to the Seattle Times. Van Winkle also set the one-year state record with 18 field goals in 11 games as a junior. Six of them were between 42 and 49 yards.

    Last summer Van Winkle kicked for the USA National Team, which lost the IFAF World Championships gold-medal game to Canada 23-17 in Austin, Texas.

    An outstanding kicker, Van Winkle set the state record as a junior by kicking 18 field goals in 11 games. He made six from at least 42 yards, with the longest sailing 49 yards. He already is No. 2 in career field goals with 29 in 33 games.

    Coach Charlie Kinnune told Kelley, "He's really good. One of the things that we have to be careful of, and one of the things he's going to learn, is not to over-train. He'll go out and wear out his leg kicking and I think one of the things they will do is get him involved in one of the best weight programs in the country. Ivan Lewis has it going at the University of Washington. He's just going to get stronger."

    Van Winkle is a member of the Under-19 USA national team that will compete in the 2012 IFAF World Championships June 30 to July 7 in Austin Texas. The eight-nation tournament is conducted by the International Federation of American Football, which is composed of 62 nations spanning six continents that possess a national federation dedicated solely to American football.

    The U.S. under-19 national team, comprised of high school athletes, will compete against national teams from American Samoa, Austria, Canada, France, Japan, Panama and Sweden.
