The good news and bad news for Kai is I believe Kai has some natural talent and potential to be a snapper however, the bad news is he has no game experience.
Kai has practice drills and technique that I introduced to him about five weeks ago and he has made some excellent progress. When I first met Kai he had speed on his snaps however, needed to improve on his technique and accuracy. With better technique comes better accuracy. He has made significant improvement in all phases of his snapping game.
Kai has worked hard on my 'Elbow Thrust and Slide' and 'Ball & Strikes Drills'.
He could now see some of the mistakes he was making. More importantly the video and teaching tapes he viewed helped to make everything crystal clear for him on what he needed to do to improve and still take his game to the next level.
We finished both days with field goal snapping technique. Kai has also improved on his technique and consistency in this phase of his snapping game. He has learned to snap with better tempo and rhythm. During my 'Perfect Laces Drill' he was hitting almost every snap right on the money.
It has been a pleasure meeting and working with Kai and his father 'Buster'. They are both really nice people and I wish Kai the best of luck in his pursuit of an NFL, CFL or UFL career.
