River Falls Kicking Camp

On Saturday, Sunday and Monday I worked the River Falls Kicking Camp, in River Falls Wisconsin for my 35th year...how time flies. This year we had 41 kicking specialists attending the camp from the Wisconsin, Minnesota and surrounding areas. Mike Morris who was the long snapper when I was the special teams coach with the Minnesota Vikings was our PRO headliner working with the snappers. Jon Ryan former Green Bay Packers and current Seattle Seahawks punter was our PRO headliner working with the punters. Also in the Camp as college counselors was Brad Nortman, University of Wisconsin sophomore punter, Rob Maver one of the top Canadian college combination punter / kickers and St. John's Minnesota senior kicker, Russell Gliadon.

All the PRO's and College Counselors did an outstanding job working with the high school specialists.

I must say once again there was a lot of excellent teaching, video taping and video review for all the participants attending the camp. Every camper left camp with a before and after video series of his performance with an analysis by a PRO headliner.

Between sessions I spent time watching and working with all the headliners and college counselors. In the above photo I am working with my two Canadian friends Jon Ryan and Rob Maver. Both have 'big' punting legs!
