Alex was very excited about coming to Arizona because he was interested in hearing my evaluation and opinion about his kicking technique . He said he has watched many of the videos on my website; www.coachzauner.com
The next two photos will paint a perfect picture.
In the photo above Alex warmed up and starting kicking with a major "Crunch". He told me that was the one thing he learned a long time ago when he started to kick. The coach told him at a kicking camp. When you really feel the "Crunch" you know your kicking well.
During the two days of individual kicking lessons we worked on Alex getting a more consistent foot to ball contact and a better rotation on his kicks.
Next, we worked on eliminating the "Crunch". Alex was a quick study. He liked what I was saying and more importantly he felt like he could kick up and through the ball better. Alex starting kicking the ball higher and straighter with less effort.
It was a pleasure meeting and working with Alex. He has a lot of natural kicking talent. I feel that in a couple of weeks his kicking will get even better with less thinking.
Unfortunately I missed my opportunity to get a photo of Alex and myself...sorry Alex!
However, I will have the chance as Alex will be participating in my College Senior Specialists Combine February 20-21 in Phoenix, Arizona.
