During the first lesson I watched and observed Cody's technique and asked a lot of questions. Cody informed me that he was taught to drop the ball outside of his hip as you see in the photo below. This can be a major factor effecting consistency.
The second thing that I noticed with Cody was "Crunching" technique. "Crunching" can cause any punter not to punt up and through the ball and basically lose power. (See photo below)
After Cody's first lesson we had a long video session to analyze his technique and came up with a teaching progression to help him become a more consistent punter.
I introduced Cody to my 'Drop Progression Drill'. He worked on drops, walk and drops, leg up and through, skip and transfer technique. Basically good sound fundamentals that I think will help him be more consistent with his footwork, drop and foot to ball contact.
After two days of working on fundamentals and drills I believe Cody knows exactly what he needs to work on to take his game to the next level.
It was a pleasure meeting and working with Cody and I wish him and the Colorado State Rams the best of luck in this upcoming football season.
