Australian Punter Shane Phillips

On Sunday I gave a punting lesson to Shane Phillips who was an Australian rules football player. Shane came to the United States, and atteded Alcorn State University in 2001 on a baseball scholarship. Shane played both sports and was the punter for 4 years at Alcorn State. Shane aspirations are to become a NFL punter.

Shane is a strong legged punter that needs to improve on his consistency. We worked one a couple of fundamentals that I felt would make him a better punter. We worked the drop progression and the one step drill. We then progressed to the power zone punting technique. Shane was a quick learner!

By the end of the lesson he was hitting the ball with better hang times and more consistency. It was an excellent lesson for both of us!
