Southern Specialist Recap (DEC 2013)

The second annual Southern Specialist Camp was facilitated in mid December 2013 with over 40+ kickers, punters and snappers that attended the two day event. The camp was held in conjunction with two kicking/punting/snapping businesses in Team Jackson Kicking and Special Teams Football Academy. Coach Christopher Husby runs STFA whose training primarily covers the North/Midwest  and Coach Brian Jackson runs TJK whose training primarily covers the Southeast. Campers from 11 different states were in attendance (TX, LA, MS, ARK, AL, FL, GA, TN, KY, SC, NC) which had a variety of veterans and beginners. There were several guys that need to be on college football teams watch lists and recruiting boards in all the major classes of 2014, 2015 and 2016. See Camp Recap Video Below.

The Campers really had a chance to embrace great instruction, guidance and camaraderie with other Professional and Collegiate Specialists at this camp. We had all levels covered ranging from JUCO, D2, D1AA, D1A and NFL. Staff Pic below:

There were a lot of campers that showed well at camp. There was also designated periods of camp that focused on instruction and demonstration in which the campers responded well. We had no issues with the campers attitude on the field and they were all very good listeners and it was evident they not only wanted to compete, but wanted to learn and improve their craft. Here is a recap video below of the camp:

We had a great camp with these young specialists and we look forward to future camps. The next camp Coach Husby and I will run together is the Northern Specialist Camp in Minneapolis, Minnesota January 11, 2014.  Sign up HERE to reserve a spot.
