College Senior Combine

Once again the Coach Zauner College Senior Specialist’s Combine had a great turnout; 61 kicking specialists from around the country came to Phoenix, Arizona to showcase their skills.

And even though the weather didn’t cooperate again this year, the kickers, punters and snappers who attended gave their best performance while dealing with unseasonably cool temperatures and occasional rain.

Evaluating the 61 specialists who competed in this 2nd Annual College Senior Specialist’s Combine in inclement weather, was still a matter of evaluating talent, regardless the weather or venue. Difficult weather conditions are simply part of the game. Those who play professional football already know this. Those aspiring to play professional football need to realize and accept it. And that is simply a fact.

I am pleased the Coach Zauner 2011 College Senior Specialist’s Combine yielded a number of kicking specialists who I believe have the talent to be signed as a Free Agent or be in a NFL, CFL, or UFL training camp and can compete for a roster spot. In all, I believed 15 of the specialists who attended have that ability at this time. And for those individuals I have placed their workouts on my website (http://www.coachzauner.com/) and on a DVD I took to the 2011 NFL Combine and gave to all 32 NFL Special Teams Coordinators and many Directors of College Scouting.

I was received warmly at the NFL Combine by the Special Teams Coaches who were once again, looking forward to seeing video of -on a high quality DVD- kicking specialists who were not invited to the NFL Combine but attended my College Senior Specialistss Combine and who I thought had NFL potential.

Before the video went live on my website, I had a telephone conversation with every kicking specialist and gave them my evaluation about their performance.

I believe these conversations will be useful in helping them take their game to the next level and reaching their goal of playing professional football. It is truly my intention to help each and every specialist who attended become better at their craft.

After the Combine, many specialists said they were interested in attending my One on One Lessons or PRO Development Camps.

I look forward to working with these individuals over the coming year, and to seeing them at the 2012 Coach Zauner Free Agent Specialist’s Combine, as they pursue 'A Specialist’s Path to PRO Football’.


Next up is the 3rd Annual Coach Zauner Free Agent Specialist’s Combine schedule for March 28th, 2011.
Although there is uncertainty regarding the extension of the CBA, and regardless any restrictions on coach and player contact that may be imposed by the league, Coach Zauner will still be hosting the 3rd Annual Coach Zauner Free Agent Specialist's Combine in March.
After talking with a number of NFL GM’s, coaches and league officials at the 2011 NFL Combine, Coach Zauner says teams ensured him, even if they are not allowed to attend the event, they still want and need the information on the kicking specialists attending the event. Coach Zauner has a game plan to make sure the NFL teams get this information.
Additionally, all UFL teams and many of the CFL teams have confirmed they will be in attendance.
We have had very successful Free Agent Combines over the last two years which have yielded quite a few specialists signing to NFL, CFL and UFL camps or rosters. And I have no reason to believe this year will be any different.
So, regardless of anything in the wind (or any other weather conditions for that matter), I expect this year’s Coach Zauner's Free Agent Specialist’s Combine to be just as successful as the last two.

Jose Maltose & Sergio Castillo

Monterry Nuevo Leon Mexico Kickers;
Perform Well at Coach Zauner's PRO Development Camp

Sergio Castillo, West Texas A & M Attends One on One Lessons and PRO Development Camps; Ends Season With All Conference Honors

Ivan Pena / Arturo Pena / Jose Maltos & Sergio Castillo

The 1st of many international kickers to come to my PRO Development Camp. Ivan Sena, Eduardo Santos, Jose Maltos made the trip from Monterry, Mexico to attend this camp in Scottsdale, AZ.

Jose Maltos is a kicker for the Universidad Autonoma De Nuevo Leon in Mexica (UANL). Jose came to my camp along with his manager and special teams coach to learn the art of kicking. Having never met Jose, after a couple of minutes I could tell the kid had potential. After a couple of small changes, he really started hitting the ball more consistently and was one of the final two kickers in our kicking contest at the end of the Arizona PRO Development Camp.
Ivan Sena is another kicker from for the Universidad Autonoma De Nuevo Leon in Mexica (UANL). Ivan also did very well at my camp and picked up on the coaching very well.

Sergio Castillo currently attends West Texas A&M and has been working with me for the last year. Sergio has taken One on One lesson and has made great improvement since last year. He was the All-Conference Kicker in his league and my hat is off to him and his work ethic.
He competed well this weekend at my camp and was a great help to bridge the gap of communication between the amigos and I.
Sergio is a first class person and a excellent kicker / punter. You will hear more about Sergio in the future.

It was a honor having these international specialists come to my PRO Development Camp. They will take home new drills, technique and a new philosophy on the art of kicking that will beneift there football program as they grow in the future.

Click below and listen to the testimonial by Eduardo Santos and what he had to say about his and his two kickers Jose Maltos and Ivan Pens's experience at Coach Zauner's PRO Development Camps in Phoenix, Arizona in January. There is also video of Jose Maltos and his 60 Yard Field Goal during Coach Zauner's Kicking Contest at the end of the testimonial.
