San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2012
Special Teams University hosted a successful NCS evaluation event in Baldwin, WI, on July 29, 2012 according to Camp Director Kyle Stelter.
"The July 29, NCS evaluation event brought together many of the top kicking, punting and snapping prospects from the Baldwin area,” says Stelter. “Campers were charted on field goals, kickoffs, punts and short/long snaps."
Stelter is considered one of the top long snapping instructors in the nation. He is founder and owner of Special Teams University, was taught the skill of long snapping his senior year of high school to help his chances of making a college team by his high school coach.
The skill he learned helped to get him onto the roster at UW-Stout here he played college football for the first time. He then transferred to the University of Wisconsin River Falls where he started for two years and was named three time special teams player of the week.
During the summers he was still playing, he worked at the UW-River Falls kicking, punting, and long snapping camp as the long snapping instructor gaining skills and experience not only in long snapping, but in kicking, punting, and holding to help train young athletes and help them become the best that they can be.
He has worked alongside snapping and kicking professionals from such teams as the Baltimore Ravens, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, and Minnesota Vikings.
Stelter started Special Teams University after watching many high school and even college teams struggle at specialist positions. Every other position on a team has a coach except usually the long snappers, kickers, and punters. Stelter says his goal is to help as many athletes as he can perfect their skill and make it to the next level, whether that is high school, college, semi-pro, or professional.
Stelter is still a student at the University of Wisconsin River Falls and is pursuing a career in physical education, Health Education, and Adapted Physical Education. Stelter is the special teams coach for the Falcons and also helps coach the high school team in his home town of Osceola WI. Stelter is also following his dream of becoming a professional long snapper and is rated a 5 star NFL Free Agent by the prestigious Aguiar/Husted Pro Camp.
Michael Husted, who created the National Camp Series (NCS) after kicking in the NFL for 9 years, says having coaches like Stelter attests to the quality of coaches at NCS events.
“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.”
Husted says he is very happy to have a coach like Stelter as part of the NCS team.
“Stelter is a great coach,” says Husted. “I’m looking forward to working with him on all his NCS events in 2012.”
Husted says he is excited about the NCS season starting again so soon after a very successful NCS Super Camp in Orlando, Florida in February.
"2012 is shaping up to be 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."
