Coach Zauner's 2011 College Senior Specialist's Kicking Combine attracted 61 College Senior Specialists.  These (17) kickers, (20) punters and (24) snappers came to Phoenix, Arizona to show Coach Zauner their NFL, CFL and UFL potential.

These 61 specialists were not invited to the 2011 NFL Combine in Indianapolis and wanted to receive exposure to NFL, CFL, and UFL Personnel Directors and Special Teams Coordinators.

Because of the NFL Lockout this year many College Senior and Free Agent Specialists did not receive the same look or exposure they deserved.  However, the following (7) Seven College Senior Specialists that did attend Coach Zauner's College Senior Combine did sign free agent contracts and started the 2011 NFL season in training camps in July.  Many of these specialists also received One on One kicking, punting and snapping lessons and attended Coach Zauner's PRO Development Camps.
