Pat was also about 40 pounds heavier last year. Now, he is looking fit and in great shape! He has an impressive quick and explosive leg and kicks his field goals with excellent trajectory.
We worked my One Step Drill. Next I made Pat more aware when marking off his steps on the right and left hash marks to get a 90 degree angle instead of reducing his approach, which caused him to push his kicks right.

Last we worked to improve his consistency on kickoffs. For the power and distance Pat kicks field goals it was not transferring over to his kickoffs. His steps and plant were erratic, causing inconsistency in his foot to ball contact.
Pat left Arizona knowing what he needs to do to improve his consistency on field goals and kickoffs. If he does improve his consistency he will be in someones camp this summer.
It was a pleasure working with Pat and I wish him the best of luck pursuing a job in the NFL.
