Special Teams Football Academy is excited to announce that 18 of our trainees (Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers), representing 12 Minnesota High School Football Varsity programs, have helped their teams reach the 2018 High School Football State Tournament.




It's pretty amazing to follow the high school playoff brackets to see who keeps advancing as well as see if any of the teams have specialists we've trained.  Both Lakeville North and Eden Prairie have 3 specialists on varsity that have trained with Special Teams Football Academy!

With that being said, Good Luck to the kicking games of the following programs: 

  • 6A- Blaine (1), Eastview (1), Eden Prairie (3), Lakeville North (3), Minnetonka (1), Woodbury (2)
  • 5A- Bemidji (1), Cambridge-Isanti (1), Elk River (1), St Thomas Academy (2)
  • 4A- SMB (1)
  • 3A- Rochester Lourdes (1)


We are very proud of everyone: Coaches and Athletes included.  Good luck to you all as you compete for a berth at state. 

Contact Special Teams Football Academy and take your game to the next level!

      2018 College Run Kicking Camp Schedule | For Kickers, Punters, Long Snappers

      2018 College Run Kicking Camp Schedule | For Kickers, Punters, Long Snappers

      Here are a list of most of the prominent College Specialists Camps (over 80) coming up for the summer of 2018. (We don't have every school).  It's been compiled the list using a few resources, we've found as well (including Kick Spot, which supplied a majority of the camp list).  If only the school name is listed, then the camp is dedicated to specialists only. If the camp is for all players and specialists are welcome, then it is listed as a prospect camp. 



      ll camps are available to any specialist (Rising 9th-12th, JUCOs and College Transfers) that would like to showcase their abilities and get noticed by the college’s coaching staff.  It is important for you to do research on these schools to find out if the program is a good fit for you academically and athletically.

      MOST OF THE SCHOOLS HERE ARE LOOKING FOR A KICKER, PUNTER, AND LONG SNAPPER.



      If you know of another camp that we don't have listed, please email CoachHusby@gmail.com and I'll update the list.  More camp locations will be added soon.
