The Kicking Coach staff and alumni videos were filmed at our kicking camps or at individual training sessions with athletes. Everyone should watch more experienced kicker and punter videos and try to figure out the differences between their own kicking mechanics and theirs. While most specialists have their own unique kicking style, almost everyone at the NFL level kicks the same way.
