Mitchell kicked a few kicks for me with his old technique and I could see right away that he had some tools to be a good kicker. I showed him a couple of things I thought he needed to refine. He was very receptive to coaching and he did everything that I ask him to do. At first the technique was a little different from what he had previously done but after watching the video it made much more sense.
Mitchell was having a little problem with his foot position but he started to improve with it on the second day. Foot position is something that takes some trial and error and just like with golf if you hit one good shot or kick it will keep you coming back for more. We worked on kickoffs and I introduced him to a 5 step kickoff approach and he started to get the hang of it.
It was great working with Mitchell and I hope he has a great season. I apologize to he and his father for not being available to do a follow up lesson but I just happened to run out of time this Summer. It was great working with Mitchell and I believe he is going in the right direction to become a very good kicker.
