San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
Up and Through hosted a successful National Camp Series (NCS) evaluation event for high school kickers, punters and snappers in Franklin, OH, according to kicking coach and Camp Director Tim Williams.
At Waynesville (Ohio) High School, Tim Williams had the record for the longest field goal in the state of Ohio: a 57-yarder on Oct. 14, 1988. From there Tim went on to a successful college and pro career.
Now, Williams is working with young men from the 6th grade to those playing in college and training in the NFL to help them achieve their own dreams in the sport.
After high school Williams attended The Ohio State University on a full football scholarship. As a four year starting place kicker (1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993) and a starting punter in 1991 and 1993, Tim earned 1st Team All-Big Ten honors in 1993.
At that time Williams held the Ohio State records with 49 career field goals along with the career P.A.T. percentage (99%) and consecutive P.A.T.'s with 86. While the career field goals mark has been broken Williams was still honored by being named as the kicker for the Buckeyes All-Centry Team.
After college, Williams spent two years with several NFL teams, including the Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also spent a year with the Dayton Skyhawks of the IFL (Indoor Football League) in 2000 and the Ohio Valley Greyhounds of the NIFL (National Indoor Football League) in 2001.
Williams also spent three years with the Detroit Fury of the Arena Football League at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan.
Kicking coach Michael Husted, who created the National Camp Series after spending 9 years in the NFL, says is about quality coaching and that he is happy to have Williams as part of the NCS team.
“NCS Associates are some of the best kicking coaches in the country,” says Husted. “NCS coaches provide the highest quality instruction to high school kicking specialists around the country.”
“Tim Williams is an excellent kicking coach,” says Husted. “I’ve enjoyed working with him this year on all his NCS events.”
“2012 has been the best year yet for the National Camp Series,” says Husted. “After a strong 2011, and having introduced our Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, we are positioned extremely well to leverage analytics to showcase our athletes, and to provide ‘objective high school kicking specialists statistics' to college and university coaches.”
Husted says that by utilizing its Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, NCS provides an objective evaluation platform for student-athletes who want to showcase their capabilities to colleges and universities for recruiting purposes.
By sorting through over six years of historical event data, the KIX system determines a kicker’s rankings by cross-referencing player data to determine how the athletes stack up against others, both presently and historically.
"The NCS levels the playing field for those who don't want to get caught up in all of the 'politics' that occurs in the kicking industry,” says Husted. “If you can kick, punt or snap, the NCS KIX system will let a young kicking specialist’s skills speak for themselves. No excuses. No explanations."
