Punter Scholarships - D1 Athletic Performance Academy in Jupiter, FL

          Just finished up my morning session with Joey Diovisalvi and Jeff Fronk at the D1 Athletic Performance Academy in Jupiter, Florida. With the ultimate goal of attaining college scholarships for my students, I will be working in conjunction with D1 to develop my high school and college punters/kickers. The facility is picture perfect for athletes to prepare, train and perfect the many movements that are needed in every sport. D1 specializes in the sports specific evaluation and training of all athletes. Coach Joey D,  the bio-mechanics and  personal training guru on the PGA Tour, also has The Golf Gym training facility on the D1 campus as well.

      When punters/kickers come to our campus, I personally show them the science behind generating maximum foot speed while punting/kicking the football. After my initial consultation and film evaluation, each individual punter will then be evaluated by Coach Joey D, pin-pointing specific areas of the body which need to be strengthened in order to perform at the highest level. Once the athlete is tested, an  in-depth stretching, weight training and conditioning program is developed around the individual needs of each and every athlete.

     The Seven Pillars of Foot Speed

  With the help of  D1 strength coach Jeff Fronk, we've identified the seven pillars that create the foundation for my athletes - Flexibility, Mobility, Stability, Balance, Coordination, Strength and Power. The product of these pillars is SPEED. In the game of punting the football, we're talking about foot speed.

     It is my approach to show each athlete exactly how to generate maximum foot speed and then work backwards from there. Once each athlete is taught  the feeling of generating maximum foot speed, all the other aspects of punting the football such as posture, body angle, stepping pattern and  the drop will simply fall into place.

  Please join us at The D1 Athletic Performance Academy this winter and take the steps needed to become an elite performer.
