1 on 1 Training in Akron, Ohio

  • Ohio 1 on 1 coaching is provided by Josh Brebant.
  • Josh Brebant is The Kicking Coach Alum and a recent college graduate who lives in Akron, Ohio. He has been part of our organization since 2011 and has shown unmatched passion for mastering of kicking skills. He has a deep understanding of what it takes, and how to train to become a great kicker. Josh is a certified personal trainer (ACE and NCSF), and just a physical fitness nut who guides specialists through kicker-specific exercises to enhance kicking power.
  • As a kicker, Josh stood out as one of the top high school kickers in the country, earning a scholarship to Northern Illinois University, which was at that time one of the top teams in college football, facing Florida State in Orange Bowl of Bowl Championship Series Game. Josh’s college career was derailed by multiple injuries and subsequent surgeries. But Josh kept training and kicking out of love for the game. He is currently 23-years old and plays for a semi pro team for fun – where he kicked a 57 yard field goal on a non-windy day. At our Ohio Kicking Camp in June 2018, he kicked a 61 yard FG, and a 76 yard, 4.4 second hang time kickoff – just for fun.
