Husted Kicking Weekend Training Mini Camp

Husted Kicking College Senior Combine

February 6th & 7th, 2016
San Diego, CA

Former NFL Punter Darren Bennett, Long Snapper Mitch Palmer and I will be coaching and evaluating at this combine.  This event will provide you an opportunity to showcase your talent for NFL and CFL teams.  Our experience of playing in the NFL as well as coaching hundreds of specialists has provided us with the opportunity to network with NFL and CFL coaches and personnel. 

As part of the Husted College Senior Combine, a proper mental and kicking/punting specific program will be introduced.  In the NFL, being able to make a roster and play for several years needs a professional attitude, dedication and discipline.  At the end of the weekend, you will have a great understanding of what is expected to play at the highest level.

In just our first two College Senior Combines, we have been instrumental for getting specialists signed immediately after the draft and/or brought into rookie mini-camps: 

  •        Andrew Franks - Miami Dolphins
  •        Jason Myers - Jacksonville Jaguars
  •        Travis Coons - Cleveland Browns
  •        Corey Acosta - San Francisco 49ers
  •        Andrew Furney - NY Jets
  •        Dan Goodale - Baltimore Ravens
  •        Mike Sadler - Tampa Bay Bucs
  •        Brock Miller - St. Louis Rams

Husted Kicking Senior Combine will provide:

  • Two days of combine style charting on field goals, kickoffs and punts
  • Both days filmed in HD
    • Video will be uploaded to YouTube
    • You will be given a copy of your workouts
  • Presentation on selecting the right agent to represent you
  • Mental training and preparation presentation
  • Kicker/Punter specific strength and conditioning program

The benefits of attending this kicking camp for draft eligible seniors:

  • This event serves as an official alternate NFL combine for those who were not invited to the NFL’s combine in Indianapolis
  • The NFL uses a third party organization to select players for their combine, thus over looking many talented prospects
  • An opportunity to get evaluated by retired NFL kickers and punters
  • Live HD streaming online for NFL/CFL teams
  • Online Pro Profile with your combine results and video for all professional leagues
  • Listed on Husted Kicking’s Pro Rankings Page that is used by NFL teams
