As the new year begins, and the 2013 football season appears on the horizon, retired NFL punter Louie Aguiar and retired NFL kicker Michael Husted are making preparations for the 2013 Aguiar / Husted Pro Camp which will be held at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL, March 9-14, 2013.

Husted, who kicked in the NFL for 9 years and is currently a kicking coach in San Diego, CA, says the 2013 Aguiar / Husted Pro Camp is an important stop for both college and free agent kicking specialists looking to play in the NFL.

“At the pro level, our event serves as an official ‘alternate’ NFL combine for those who were not invited to the NFL’s combine in Indianapolis,” says Husted. “For those still in college, the first part of our camp allows kickers to receive professional instruction from athletes who have played in the NFL as well as coached hundreds of players.”

“We will be using their two excellent grass practice fields for the charting, and then the Pro Day on the 14th, we will kick in their stadium in front of the NFL teams,” says Husted. “Current college students or a college senior who is draft eligible cannot attend the full week of camp, but can attend the weekend portion of our camp. This weekend portion will include two NFL style charting sessions with the second day’s chart video- taped.”

Husted knows what it takes to succeed in the NFL. His consistency on field goals and power on kick offs won him the job as an undrafted rookie. He 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, he established several records including:

•All-time leading scorer (502 pts.)
•Longest field goal (57 yards)
•Most 50+ field goals (10)

Like Husted, retired NFL punter Louie Aguiar says the Aguiar / Husted Pro Camp is designed to help young kickers get their shot at the pro level.

“Over the past 10 years, Michael and I have built a camp that is well respected both kickers and coaches alike. And that is something to truly be proud of,” says Aguiar. “There is no greater pleasure for us than seeing new athletes make it into the league.”

“The Aguiar/Husted Pro Camp has grown to be the most comprehensive pro camp out there for kickers, punters, long snappers and special team players,” says Aguiar. “Not only do we provide a great platform for exposure to NFL, CFL and UFL teams, but we also have actual playing experience that we share with the athletes that you can't find during instruction or video review.”

Aguiar’s NFL career got off the ground in 1991 with the New York Jets. Aguiar’s solid stats kept him there until 1994 when the Kansas City Chiefs called. Aguiar’s status as one of the NFL's most talented punters was solidified during his service with the Chiefs. Highly recognized as one of the leagues' best, Aguiar was named 2nd Team All-League Punter by the Associated Press in 1995.

Aguiar left Kansas City in 1999 for the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. In 2000, he played his final season with the Chicago Bears where he enjoyed being a mentor to then rookie Brian Urlacher.

Aguiar says the Aguiar / Husted Pro Camp is not only the best place for the best kicking specialists to show their talents, but it has also become the place where NFL/CFL coaches can go to find that talent.

Scott Cohen Assistant GM of the NY Jets agrees saying, “Going to Louie Aguiar and Michael Husted’s Pro Camp is a must stop for every NFL team to evaluate the best punters, kickers and long snappers available. They run their camp with efficiency, professionalism and they take pride in the product they are presenting to NFL special teams’ coaches and pro scouts.”
