Five Specialists Attend 2012 NFL Combine

Coach Zauner is Proud to Announce 
That Five of His One on One Students 
Will Be Attending The 2012 NFL Combine
Coach at 2012 Senior Bowl with Drew Butler, Randy Bullock & Brad Nortman
There is nothing more satisfying than to watch hard work pay off. I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that five of my One-on-One Kicking Specialists will be participating in this week’s 2012 NFL combine.
Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis is the site of 2012 NFL Combine
Brad Nortman, Drew Butler, Randy Bullock, Kyle Martens and Carson Wiggs have all been invited to Indianapolis to showcase their skills and abilities in front of the best coaches, scouts and teams in the business. The combine provides an opportunity for second-to-none exposure that serves as a launching pad for flourishing careers in the NFL.
Brad Nortman (U. of Wisconsin) One on One Lesson in February 2012
Brad Nortman (University of Wisconsin) and I have been working together since his Senior year in high school. Brad has since gone on to the University of Wisconsin and currently holds the third best career punting average in school history, fourth best in total punting yards and fifth best in total punts. Among his list of accolades, Brad has received two Honorable Mention All Big Ten Awards and All-Academic honors each of his three varsity years. Brad’s dedication and belief in my 'Natural Style of Kicking' technique has propelled him to become not only good at what he does, but one of the best. I cannot wait to see what he has in store in Indianapolis this weekend.
Drew Butler (U. of Georgia) Training in Phoenix January and February of 2012
Drew Butler (University of Georgia) came to me four years ago through the suggestion of his father, former Chicago Bear, Kevin Butler. Drew was a red-shirt freshman at Georgia at the time and had aspirations of following in his dad’s footsteps and playing with the big boys in the NFL. Throughout his tenure with the Bulldogs, Drew received the 2009 Ray Guy Award, which is given out annually to the most outstanding Division I punter in the country. Drew also received multiple ALL-SEC honors, was selected as “2009 Punter of theYear” by  CollegeFootballPerformance.com and was recently named to UGA’s Team of the Decade. From day one, Drew has been dedicated to perfecting his craft and over the years he used the 'Specialists Path to PRO Football' to develop a fundamentally sound technique that will take him to the next level and beyond.
Randy Bullock (Texas A & M) One on One Lesson in February 2012
Randy Bullock (Texas A & M) came to my PRO Development Camp three years ago while he was a sophomore at Texas A & M. His record-setting 2011 senior season earned him the coveted Lou Groza Award which is given annually to the nation’s best placekicker. Randy was selected to four All-America teams and received multiple All Big-12 second team honors cementing his place among the top players in the country. He finished last season as the Aggie record holder for most career points as a placekicker. Randy is an outstanding individual whose attitude and perseverance should be admired.
Kyle Martens (Rice University) One on One Lessons in January and February 2012
Kyle Martens (Rice University) and I became acquainted when he attended one of my 2011 PRO Development Camp in Phoenix. Kyle spent four years as a punter at Rice University where he earned consecutive First Team All C-USA honors, was a Second Team 2010 Walter Camp All-American selection, and finished his career with a 43.0 career punting average and a single season mark of 45.98 average which are now currently school records. On February 4th, Kyle competed in the Players All-Star Classic in Little, Rock Arkansas. I am incredibly proud of Kyle’s accomplishments and eagerly anticipate his performance at the upcoming NFL combine.
Carson Wiggs (Purdue University) One on One Lesson in February 2012
Carson Wiggs (Purdue University) was introduced to me a few weeks ago at the 2012 Senior Bowl. Carson is coming off an exceptional college career at Purdue University where he currently holds the record for field goal percentage and the four longest field goals in school history. Already receiving an invitation to the NFL combine, Carson was looking for that “edge” that would separate him from his competition, and his agent recommended him to me. Although we haven’t had years of One-on-One Training like some of my other specialists, I have already seen monumental improvements in Carson’s technique and look forward to seeing his talents on display in Indianapolis.
Drew Butler and Randy Bullock Receive Awards On and Off The Field
I am grateful to have the experience and tools to help guide these young men on a 'Specialists Path to PRO football.' Every year, prospective athletes from our PRO Development Camps,  Combines (College Senior & Free Agent Specialist's Combines) and One on One Lessons take the next step in their careers and come face to face with their dreams of playing football at a professional level. These athletes are successful not only because of their natural abilities but because they believed in the process and were committed to making the most of their talent. Watching Brad, Drew, Kyle, Randy and Carson this weekend will undoubtedly remind me why I do what I do and why I have the best, most fulfilling job on the planet.
