Nick Saban Kicking Camp Notes

  The Nick Saban Kicking Camp at the University of Alabama was a great success. Over 180 high school athletes showed up for this year's event. Chris Sailer (www.chrissailerkicking.com) and Chris Rubio (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) did a great job running their 2nd annual camp at the University of Alabama. It worked out great. Nick Saban was as cool as ever. Alabama Special Teams coach Bobby Williams got the kids fired up. Assistant Special Teams Coach  Joe Judge brought it all together. Chris Sailer shared his techniques and tips with the many aspiring  kickers. Chris Rubio shared his skill of snapping the football with the long-snappers. And I shared the basics of my 'Set & Pull' technique with the punters. All the campers did extremely well.

     When you break down the art of punting/kicking/longsnapping, the bio-mechanics are very similar. It all starts with your feet and works up from there. The balance needed to execute a kick, punt or snap is vital. Posture is next, by giving yourself the best opportunity to maximize leverage. Coach Sailer and I showed the kickers/punters how the  'snapping' of the leg creates the foot speed  needed to send the ball down field. And Coach Rubio proved why he's one of the best by explaining the motion and follow-through needed to snap the football with a combination of velocity and accuracy. It was a pleasure working with them all.

    I definitely suggest you contact Coach Sailer and Coach Rubio for instruction and/or exposure. Their camps are nationwide and will prove to help you both on and off the field.
