As a three-sport athlete in high school David had the opportunity to pursue basketball, baseball or football at the collegiate level. David decided to play baseball (1B, OF) and football (TE) at Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, MO.

A future in professional football was never one of David’s goals; professional baseball, however, was in his sight. It was at a regional workout for the Atlanta Braves in 1999 when David picked up a football someone was throwing and punted it; as luck so has it, a scout for the St. Louis Rams was there with his son, the rest as they say, is history.

David began fine tuning his skills and with the coaching of WGHS grad and former NFL coach Hank Kuhlmann c/o ‘54, Ray Pelfrey, Kelly Goodburn and Louie Aguiar. Brader signed an NFL contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2005 before a career ending injury forced him to the sideline in 2006.

Kicking coach Michael Husted, who kicked in the NFL for 9 years before creating the National Camp Series, says 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. And that is why I am happy to have Dave Brader as part of the Husted Kicking coaching team.”

Husted says 2012 shaped up to be the best year yet for the National Camp Series.
“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,” he says.

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.

"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."
