New England Patriots' Punter Zoltan Mesko delivers a funny testimonial
I tried what you said about leaning forward more in my ankles and I was amazed at the results. The ball felt much comfortably out in front of me and the contact I made with the ball felt great. I gotta say that is a very impressive coaching point from not even being able to see me! It makes me want to kick with you more! Thanks so much for the coaching point and I'm sure it will pay dividends the rest of the year.

"Coach Filipovic greatly understands the details and mechanics of kicking and punting. He has extensive technical knowledge, and he clearly communicates how to improve distance and accuracy. One of his greatest strengths is his ability to help with the psychological training that is needed to kick at the highest levels. He is a coach who not only teaches mechanics, but also inspires."

I just wanted to let you know a couple of the things you told Mason to do (change grip and push out) on punts really made a difference. He said he hit 8 punts in a row over 60 yards! His coach asked me yesterday when I was picking up his brother “what in hell did you feed Mason?” He confirmed what Mason had told me.

Tyler is 7 of 7 on PATs and 2 of 2 of FGs. His long FG was 35 yards (as time expired in the first half), but the impressive thing about it was that it hit the fence on the other side of the track. The game official asked Tyler what his best FG to date has been in practice (60 yarder, which he made on the first attempt).
I share this with you as a way of saying thank you for what Tyler has learned from you. He is considering not playing basketball this winter in order to concentrate on kicking, which would allow us to arranges a couple of lessons with you and attend your winter camps.

"Filip, I cannot begin to say how much my son David and I appreciate your commitment to David. The last two years working with you, David not only received a scholarship, but he also witnessed someone who really cares about his future. You have made it your business to keep track of David and work with him during his first college season, and David still values every minute he can get working with you. No words can express my appreciation for what you have done. I look forward to seeing you work with David throughout his college career."

"Filip played a vital role in my recruitment process, from sharpening my techniques to coming into contact with coaches. He did a great job of building on my strengths and turning my weaknesses into strengths. He exposed me to numerous college coaches, including Princeton, which is where I attend now."
My son Cameron(headband) was at your camp @ Ferris St. I just wanted to let you know that both of us enjoyed it immensely. Cam said both KC (Lopata, University of Michigan kicker) & Brett (Swenson, Michigan State kicker) both helped him a lot. He took home more information at your camp than the 3 camps before. This process of trying to get him some kind of scholarship is a lot of time, travel, money and a lot of hard work. But I must say your camp made it fun, some great coaches, and informational. Thank you for time and much needed help. Hope we can make the camp in July for punting. Thanks again.
Ray Colson, parent from Michigan.
I recommend this to anyone who needs some help with a kicker, punter and long-snapper. It was a real great day. Even for me, I have perfected the punt drop - back and to the right. I'm pretty sure that was the right way. Anyway, thanks Filip and I felt like I needed to give your camp some well-deserved credit.
Hope you can make it back to Peoria, next year.
Filip, just wanted to say your lesson was awesome. It really got me back to the fundamentals and I've been booming the ball this week. Out of about 50 punts so far my lowest hang time was 4.1 and my highest was 5.2 You definitely helped.
