James Winchester 
Signs With K.C. Chiefs 
James Winchester (U. of Oklahoma) at Coach Zauner's  2015 Free Agent Combine
I first met James Winchester after he graduated from the University of Oklahoma.  He was a Free Agent Snapper looking for work.  He had heard about me through Tress Way who is the current  Punter for the Washington Redskins and Free Agent Kicker, Patrick O'Hara both former University of Oklahoma Specialists and Teammates. 
Tress Way (U. of Oklahoma) After ONE on ONE Punting Lesson
Tress came to me after his senior year for ONE on ONE Punting Lessons and also attended the College Senior Combine.  Tress Way had immediate success signing with the Chicago Bears and later signing with the Washington Redskins. He is the current Punter for the Washington Redskins.  Patrick also came for ONE on ONE Kicking Lessons. He qualified for my Free Agent Combine and received numerous looks and tryouts the last two years.

In 2013 James Winchester attended my Free Agent Combine and several tryouts and later signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2014 again teams showed interest but there were no openings. He went back to the weight room and kept working on his technique waiting for the next Coach Zauner Free Agent Combine. 
James Winchester Impresses NFL Coaches With His Athletic Ability
This year once again James was one of the best all around snappers at my 2015 Free Agent Combine. Immediately after the Combine the Kansas City Chiefs flew him in for additional workout in front of  their Special Team Coordinator, Dave Toub and quickly there after signed him to a two year contract.
