|Future Football Kicker? Photo from J.Otte Photography (found on Google)|
Two months ago, my wife and I were starting to think of names for our "boy to be" that is due to be born around November 1st. For inspiration on names to consider, I went to my cell phone address book and even my friends list on Facebook to get inspired.
As I was going through my cell phone and Facebook lists of friends, I started noticing a trend of similar and repeat names of specialists that I was training. Which made me think and wonder what the most common name of the kickers, punters, and snappers I was training were named.

According to ESPN's 2012 Statistics, the most common kicker/punter name in the NFL is Matt with 4 (Prater, Bryant, Bosher & Mat McBriar) followed by Mike with 3 (Scifres, Nugent, Koenen).
|Snapper Alex Dequaine|
So if you name him Alex, Tyler or Justin, please give me a call :)
Have a great day!
