First Ever Kicking Video Workout Shot With A Drone Will Blow You Away!

In this video, we filmed our punting workout with Connor Bolduc of Mahtomedi High School using a GoPro Drone.  Connor is a Class of 2014 Division 1 Punting Prospect.  In this video we wanted to show the significant height he is able to get on his punts.  Over these 10 punts, he averages 45.5 yards per punt with a 4.21 second hang time average.  We wanted to tryout the ever growing popular GoPro Drones first a first ever Drone Kicking Video. Enjoy!

We are looking at adding this option in filming perspective at our upcoming summer camps and clinics.
