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
