Nathan Day

On Saturday and Sunday Nathan Day (High School) in San Fransisco was in Scottsdale, Arizona for some One on One Kicking Lessons. Nathan had been to see me with his father in December and returned for 3 sessions in 2 days before going to kicking camps this summer.

As you can see in the picture (above) I noticed that Nathan was having some trouble with his foot position on the ball. We worked on getting his foot open and making the proper contact on the ball . Improving ball contact takes some practice, but over the next two lessons Nathan was able to make the correction and was hitting the ball much better.

On the final lesson we also worked on some punting. We worked briefly on my 'Drop Progression Drill' and Nathan started to understand the technique by the end of the session.

Nathan appeared to enjoy the lessons and he mentioned wanting to come to my kicking camp in River Falls, Wisconsin from July 27-29. It was a pleasure working with Nathan and I wish him great success in his senior season!
