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. Michael Husted.

This summer kicking coaches across the country are using the National Camp Series(NCS) Kicking IndeX (KIX) System to rate high school kickers according to NCS Founder and retired NFL kicker Michael Husted.
"2012 is shaping up to be the best year yet for the National Camp Series and the Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System,” says Husted. “This summer, kicking across the country will be using the KIX System to rate high school kicking specialists who are preparing for high school and college football.”
Husted, who is a kicking coach in San Diego, CA, says over 20 NCS evaluation events are being held across the country in July alone.
“After a strong 2011, and having introduced our KIX 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."
And Husted knows there is no room for excuses when you want to play at the top levels in Pro football.
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)
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 and the KIX Rating System, the platform that objectively measures kickers, punters and long snappers through statistics which takes out all subjectivity in the evaluation process.
Husted adds the NCS is not just about player rankings, but quality coaching as well.
“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.”
