Australian Rules Punters Working To Get To NFL.

Coach Zauner's PROGRAMS Producing Results For Specialists!

In the last couple of months,  I have been contacted by two Australian Rules punters that are looking to not only get better but also get more exposure to NFL teams.  Sam Irwin-Hill, Australian rules punter from the University of Arkansas was the first to contact me.  Next, Paul Jones Australian rules punter from Arkansas State University.  

Two years ago Brad Wing came to Phoenix, Arizona and attended the PRO Development Camp in January to work and improve his punting technique.  Like Nick Novak (Chargers), Matt Overton (Colts), Brandon McManus (Denver Broncos), Brad Nortman (Panthers), Joe Cardona (NE Patriots), Morgan Cox (Ravens), Drew Butler (Cardinals), Kevin McDermott (Vikings) and Beau Brinkley all plus more have attended these camps looking to improve their Punting, Kicking or Snapping technique.

I have notice one thing about most Australian rules punters that have come to the United States and have played or are now playing college football. They all have natural foot skills, leg strength but most lack what I term a NFL punting technique. They can run and punt or punt on the run which is a part of their Australian rules football game but lack an, in the pocket NFL hang time punting technique. 

I firmly believe if most Australian rules punters were coached better on a NFL punting technique they would have a better chance of making the transition from the college game to the NFL.

In 1994 Darren Bennett came to San Diego looking to make the transition from Aussie Rules Football to the NFL. He received coaching and played in the 1995 NFL Europe Football League for one season.  He came back from Europe and in his first 1995 NFL Season with the San Diego Chargers, he was selected to the PRO Bowl.

Sam Irwin-Hill and Paul Jones both have selected another path.  Both men have been referred to me by other college specialists knowing they must get better and in need of more exposure to NFL teams.

Coach Zauner's College Senior and Free Agent Combines are producing exposure and results for many college specialists NOT invited to the Senior Bowl or NFL Combine.
