Last week Thursday, Friday and Saturday Jon Ryan, who was recently released by the Green Bay Packers was in Scottsdale, Arizona for some One on One Punting Lessons.
You can read and listen to Jon Ryan's blog and interview entry on September 7th.
After two days of instruction I sat down with Jon and did a very informal One on One Interview asking him several questions many young punters and kickers would love to ask an NFL player but never get an opportunity to ask.
At the end of our interview with topics related to his punting career I asked Jon, who is a Canadian and has one of the biggest legs I have seen when it comes to punting a football, this question:
"How would you like to be 'Kicking for a Gold Medal' in the 2012 London Olympics?"
Shane Phillips an Australian born punter came to the United States and played his college football at Alcorn State University. He is now living a dream to become an NFL punter.
I interviewed Shane and asked him, "What do you think about 'kicking a ball' being an 2012 Olympic event and 'Kicking for a Gold Metal' representing your country?"
You can view Shane Phillips response in the video below.
