Expertise

I can answer any football related kicking/punting and field goal related questions, to include what camps to attend and when, how to effectively analyse where you are as a kicker/punter, and how to work with your High School and College Special Teams coach.

Experience in the area

I am the longest active kicking coach in the US (this is my 35th year) and still kick and train with the young kickers I work with. I have helped place over several hundred kickers in D1, II, and III schools, and have built specific software that no one else has done to help kickers and coaches assess the work they are doing. I am a former D1 kicker, and a former NFL walk-on punter. Lastly, I have published the first ebook ever written on the kicking industry related to how to managed the whole recruiting process and what to look out for. The ebook is entitled... "The Journey- A Roadmap for Every Football Kicking Specialists and Their Parents" . The ebook can be found on Kindle, Amazon, Scribd, Barnes and Noble.

What do you like about this subject?

training and developing young kickers, but also "training" the unsuspecting parents as to what this "journey" entails, and the associated costs.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

To continue to keep getting better at getting better every day

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Unfortunately many HS (and some college coaches) do not understand the true dynamics of the kicking game, nor to they know how to properly train/coach/mentor high powered kickers.
