Justin's long range goal is to be an NFL snapper. He's dieting and lifting to put on good muscle weight. He is also working to refine his snapping technique and that is why he is here in Scottsdale Arizona for One on One Snapping Lessons.
We spent time every session doing a 'Perfect Laces Drill'. Justin after three days finally mastered the drill and executed 2 sets of 'Perfect Laces' or laces out consecutively. A set consists of 10 snaps to a holder. Above you can see the holder catching the ball with 'Perfect Laces' at 8 yards with the laces out. In our earlier lesson he was only at 60 to 80%.
Justin's punt snapping speed is good (.71 to .77) at 15 yards, but his accuracy and consistency need to improve. He had various routines and a lot of head movement which I felt caused him some problems. Justin worked hard in three lessons on getting one setup, a consistent release point and snapping and vertical setting straight back to get him to become more consistent.
Justin improved every day he was here and learned some great drills. The key to his or any clients improvement is taking what you learn, go home and practice, practice and more practice. It is a waste of money and time if you don't make a commitment to get better!
