Mark Gronzalski 14 Hour Tour!

Late Tuesday Mark Gronzalski from William Penn University in West Des Moine flew in for a 14 hour stay to get two One on One Punting Lessons. Mark wanted to get some instruction before his NAIA All Star Game this weekend in Kansas City.

Mark got off the plane and we went immediately to the practice field because we had only about 2 hours of sunlight left in the sky.

Mark started punting and I observed. He's about 6' and 220 pounds and has a strong leg! However, his drop was very inconsistent. We worked a couple of drill to correct his problem. We punted until the sun went down and headed to my office to view the video.

Mark has not watched a lot of video of himself. So, as I pointed out what we needed to correct and how, Mark was very happy that we video taped the lesson because he could see clearly what he needed to do to get better.

I took Mark to his hotel so he could get some sleep, on Wednesday we started our lesson at 6:30 in the morning because Mark's flight left at 9:45 AM. This was a world wind tour for this young man.

The second lesson began with several drills to correct Mark's punting problems. He was very good at listening and picking up concepts. He caught on to the drills quickly and had immediate results.

In about 14 hours, we completed two One on One Punting Lessons, viewed the video and got Mark to the airport to catch his flight.

Mark was very pleased with the results and was happy that he made the trip to Fountain Hills to work with me.
