S&P Training in FL

I'm having a blast building my Punting Academy in Jupiter/Boca Raton/Ft Lauderdale, Florida. I just finished up with Univ of New Mexico punter, Andre' Archuleta. He made great progress during our punting sessions last week. We identified areas Andre' needs to work on such as 'allowing his hands to work' quicker when adjusting his drop, shortening up his stepping pattern and maintaining a solid ankle lock through impact. Andre's leg strength will continue to increase once he embraces the workout regime he received with coaches Joey Diovisalvi and Jeff Fronk at D1 Athletic/Golf Gym in Jupiter, FL..

   I've been extremely impressed with the progress on Univ of Miami (FL) punter, Cameron Dean. He reminds me of St Louis Rams' All Pro punter Donnie Jones. I started working with Donnie in 2001 while he was at LSU. They have similar physiques and I truly feel Cam is way ahead of schedule. In addition to physical training, Cameron will be working with mind skills coach Michael Cooper from Human Performance Mentors in Boca Raton, FL. As long as Cam commits to getting focused, stronger and continues to embrace his S&P technique, there's no doubt you'll be seeing him punting for the Canes next fall.

    Probably the biggest surprise has been first time punter, Mike Navarro from Chicago, IL. Having never played organised football, Mike has one of the most 'live' legs I've seen in a long time. He is a rare natural. Mike is committed to taking advantage of coach Joey Diovisalvi's 21 point bio-mechanic evaluation and Jeff Fronk's strength and conditioning program. As long as Mike masters his version of the Set & Pull, we will definitely see him punting for a major university in the near future.

Good work boys - UG
