San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2012
Husted Kicking launches a mobile website at Husted Kicking.mobi according to retired NFL Kicker and current kicking coach Michael Husted.
“With the majority of people accessing the internet through their smart phones, we felt that adding a mobile version of hustedkicking.com was vital,” said Husted. “We want people to find and learn about Husted Kicking effectively. Our mobile site does exactly that.”
Husted is a retired 9 Year NFL Kicker. His consistency on field goals and power on kick offs won him the job as an undrafted rookie. Michael went on to have a successful rookie season where he was named to Football Digest’s All Rookie team.
During his time with the Tampa Bay Bucs, Michael established several records including:
•All-time leading scorer (502 pts.)
•Longest field goal (57 yards)
•Most 50+ field goals (10)
Michael attended the University of Virginia. During his time with the Cavaliers, he was the kick off specialist during his freshman and sophomore seasons. He then handled all kicking duties his junior and senior seasons.
During his senior campaign, he connected on 13-16 field goals and was named a Lou Groza semi-finalist. Michael also had a total of 95 touchbacks during his college career, the most in UVA history.
In high school at Hampton High School in Virginia, Michael played in three state championship games, winning two with the Crabbers.
Michael earned several awards during his high school career:
*Parade All American Honorable mention (Senior year)
*First team All-state Kicker (Senior and Junior years)
*First team All-region Kicker (Senior and Junior years)
*First team All-district Kicker (Senior and Junior years)
After his NFL career, Michael was involved in an online start up, iPlayers.net in 2005. This innovated site at the time took high school recruiting from “snail mail” to the internet.
In 2007, the company was acquired by the Active Network in San Diego, CA. After working in the “corporate” world for a couple of years, Michael realized that one of his passions was helping athletes to leverage their sport for a college education.
Since that time, Michael founded the National Camp Series. This platform objectively measures kickers, punters and long snappers through statistics which takes out all subjectivity in the evaluation process.
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."
