THE KICKING COACH ALUMNI

Featured Alumni

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals, Memphis University ('17)

Jake Elliott, Kicker. Drafted by the Bengals in 5th round of 2017 NFL Draft. Jake was one of the most consistent high school kickers in the country. He continued that consistency through four years of college. NFL took notice of his long track record of success and drafted him before any other specialist. 

 

Oklahoma University - Class of 2018

Austin Seibert, Kicker/Punter. We have been working with Austin since he was a talented 15-year old kicker. He dominated in high school, winning pretty much any award a high school specialist can win. As soon as he stepped foot on Oklahoma's campus, he got to work, and won starting field goal and punting jobs as a true freshman - beating out a junior and a senior.

Cort Johnson, Punter, West Texas A&M University '09. Cort was an all-conference selection as a sophomore.  Simply put, Cort is one of the best punters in the country. The reason why you never heard of him is because his school is located somewhere near nowhere, Texas.
