Max Curtis is looking to be the kicker at Christ Presbyterian High School this year and he and his father, Tucker, came for the evalution. Evaluations are a valuable tool for parents and kids alike because after about 5 to 10 minutes I can tell you if someone has talent or not. After watching kickers and punters for the past 13 years as either a player or coach you can see if someone has the 'pop' in there leg and Max definitely has the ability.
The next lesson was Andrew Fletcher (MBA High School). I have worked with Andrew quite a few times over the past year. We have focused on his ability to kick off the ground. Kicking off the ground can be a challenge for kickers making the transition because of foot position. Andrew has worked hard on adjusting his foot position and has really made some great strides on his technique.
The final lesson I did this weekend was Tanner Hudson (Camden Central). Tanner is actually my cousin and just finished his freshman year as the starting kicker. He kicked lots of extra points last year but did not get to attempt a field goal.
