Kicking Coach Testimonials

This past week I have received two great testimonials from a parent whose son attended one of my recent kicking camps, and from a collegiate specialist I have helped train over the last 2 years and mentor as he pursues the NFL.  Please enjoy them as I have as well.

"We've been to multiple camps like Kohl's and Sailers, but this camp was ran much better. The staff were very personable and did a good job combining instruction and competition with players. It was also nice to see how much fun everyone had throughout the event." - Parent Testimony from our Southern Specialists Camp


43 Specialists attended the Southern Specialists Camp we ran with Team Jackson Kicking

"Chris is an not just another kicking instructor.  He is a teacher that is willing to take the time and effort to look at each kicker and punter on an individual level in order to cater to their specific needs, kicking style, and approach.  He has years of collegiate experience, and Free Agent NFL level training and tryouts, which have allowed him to not only help high school and college specialists, but myself included.  Chris does all of this in order to give back what he has learned over the years and I applaud him for that.  I can't thank Chris enough for the influence he has played during my collegiate career at Minnesota, but also as a mentor as I continue on in my journey to the NFL.  I would recommend Chris to anyone that is looking to improve themselves on and off the field." - Jordan Wettstein, University of Minnesota, Kicker 2009-2012 & Green Bay Blizzard Arena Football 2013

Best Highlight Film Ever (Sort of)

I came across this highlight film made by a football player named Ryan Potter.  It's called "The Official Ryan Potter Highlight Film."  He is a corner back and kicker too.  But it appears to be a little bit of a Spoof on Highlight Films with clips from some of his games.  Looks like he's not taking himself too serious with this video.  It's pretty amusing to watch and is starting to go viral.  Already at 188,203 views since being posted December 7, 2012.

I just love this video.  Take a look for yourself.
