Mychal Galla, Punting & Kicking Lessons

On Thursday and Friday Mychal Galla a combo specialist from Albion College in Michigan was in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for a Punting and Kicking Lesson.

Mychal is a strong legged combo punting and kicking specialists. Mychal like many specialists has a strong leg but was lacking some basic fundamentals.
During the two days I introduced Mychal to several drills that I felt would help refine his technique.

With regard to his punting I introduced my Drop Progression and One Step Drills.

During his kicking lesson I introduced the One Step Drill and focused on foot position and kicking up and through the ball with better body position and form.

At the end of the lesson we focused on Mychal's kickoff technique. We focused on refining Mychal's kickoff hurdling technique and once again kicking with better technique.

It was a pleasure meeting and working with Mychal. He is a specialist from a small school who has a pretty big leg. He would like to get exposure to the NFL and would like to have a good senior year.

During the two days of punting and kicking lessons, Mychal was a quick study. He learned the drills and improved at a rapid pace. The key to his improvement will be how hard he works in the next three weeks to get the proper muscle memory and take his game to the next level.

I wish Mychal Galla the best of luck in his senior season at Albion College.
