Drew Butler (right) was the starting punter at the University of Georgia last season and won the prestigious 'Ray Guy' Award for the outstanding college punter. Drew averaged 48.8 yards per punt and was the leader in the nation for gross and net punting average.
C.J. Feagles (left) was a red shirt freshman at the University of North Carolina last season. C.J. will be competing this spring for the starting punting position with several other specialists.
Several weeks ago Jeff Feagles after talking to his old team mate and friend Kevin Butler called me asking if he could bring his two son's to Scottsdale, Arizona for some One on One Punting Lessons. Jeff and Kevin were teammates with the Arizona Cardinals for a couple seasons and along with their son's have since remained good friends.
C.J. was a quick study in the two days of lessons. He listened and worked hard on all the drills. He quickly saw and felt some excellent improvement. C.J. was now punting up and through the ball with much more power and hitting a lot of Power Zone Punts.
In my goal post drill C.J. starting hitting almost every punt into the Power Zone with a spiral nose over result. View the video below to hear the reaction from the crowd... Jeff Feagles, Drew and Kevin Butler.
It was a pleasure meeting and working with C.J. Feagles and I wish him the best of luck this spring winning the punting job at the University of North Carolina.
