C.J. Santiago Punting Lessons

On Saturday and Sunday former BYU punter C.J. Santiago was in Scottsdale, Arizona for a One on One Punting Lesson. C.J. graduated last year and is interested in attending my Free Agent Specialists Combine March 27 -28 here in Phoenix, Arizona.

The first day I watched C.J. go through his warm up and immediately noticed his outside drop. He was taught to drop the ball outside his hip! He had no idea until he saw the photo's and video that his drop was dramatically outside his hip.

After the first lesson I introduced C.J. to my Drop Progression, Modified One Step and Catch and One Step Drills. He went back to a friends house and practiced for hours.

C.J. came back on Sunday and was bound and determined to get his fundamentals right. He improved quickly and noticed results. His drop was nose down and directly in front of his punting leg.

He was also punting up and through the ball much better and was hitting a lot more (SNO) Spiral Nose Over Punts to his Power Zone!

It was a real pleasure meeting and working with C.J. and I wish him the best of luck.
