The position of kicker is a unique position. Not only does a kicker need to be athletic and coordinated to kick the ball physically but he must posses the confidence to handle pressure. Flexibility, strength, technique and mental toughness are all important attributes of a great kicker.
“I can tell you, I have seen too many kickers that can kick the ball a long way, but doing it under pressure is another story. A great kicker will leave no stone unturned as they will have strong fundamentals, raw power and have the knack to execute when the game is on the line!” –Coach John Matich
