Brock Jolly Punting Lessons

Brock Jolly who will be a sophomore punter at Missouri Baptist College next season lives here in Phoenix, Arizona and came over to Fountain Hills, Arizona for some One on One Punting Lessons.

Brock made some excellent progress from the beginning of Lesson #1 to the end of Lesson #2. During the lessons we worked on raising Brock's drop table, keeping two hands on the ball and staying more compact. In the photo below you see Brock with a fairly low drop.

During the lessons Brock hit a lot of SNO (spiral nose over) punts. However at times his drop moved on him and went nose up. When Brock had a good drop he hit some good hang time punts.

When I asked Brock what is a good hang time for him he said about 4.2 to 4.4 seconds. I said what if we can get you to hit some 4.5 to 4.8 hang times. He was all for it!

We worked my drop progression and one step drills and Brock was a quick study. He learned fast and improved quickly. As his footwork and drop improved his hang times went up.

At the end of the second day he hit two 4.7 second plus hang times back to back and said he had never done that before. His best was a 4.92. Brock was now punting more consistently. He was punting up and through the ball rather than punting and falling back.

I believe Brock was happy with his improvement and would like to come back later in the summer and work on his field goal kicking technique.

It was a pleasure meeting and working with Brock and I wish him the best of luck next year as the punter and kicker at Missouri Baptist College.
