National Camp Series (NCS) Associate Chris Husby, of Special Teams Football Academy, has joined Kicking For The Dream’s effort to fight ovarian cancer according to NFL Kicker, and Kicking For The Dream Founder, Billy Cundiff.
"Chris is an outstanding coach and does a great job relating to his kickers and punters," says Cundiff. "We are excited that he has joined Kicking for the Dream. He is a first class individual and someone we are proud to have associated with the project."
Husby responds in kind.
“I'm looking forward to support Billy’s effort to raise money to fight ovarian cancer,” says Husby. “The 'Kicking For The Dream' concept is a great way to harness and unite our Kicking Community with a common interest of raising awareness and the goal to fight ovarian cancer.”

Chris Husby, owner and head instructor of Special Teams Football Academy, started kicking at the age of 12 and worked his way to punting in college and as an NFL Free Agent; something he has been perfecting ever since.
In 2012 Husby was named Head Kicking Coach for the National Camp Series All-Midwest Regional and Tournament Team. He was also one of the "featured coaches" at the NCS "Super Kicking Camp 6. In addition, he was also "Nike Coach of the Year" Clinic Speaker on "The Kicking Game."
This weekend, Husby, along with NCS Associate Tom Feely, will be holding a NCS Divisional Kicking Camp along with their Top Tier All American Camp and will be introducing the Kicking For The Dream project to the campers who attend.
“This two day event will give young kicking specialists a chance to compete to earn a chance to become an All American,” says Husby. These specialists will be attending a top notch kicking, punting, and snapping camp run by some of the top instructors in the area. I am certainly looking forward to introducing Kicking For The Dream project to all those who attend.”
Husby is the third NCS Associate to announce his support for the Kicking For The Dream project. Earlier this week, NCS Founder Michael Husted was the first to lend his support to the project.
The National Camp Series (NCS) is a nationwide network of expert kicking coaches with NFL and College level playing experience. According to Husted, the goal of NCS is to provide effective instruction on the field and guidance off of the field that will allow student-athletes the ability to leverage their sport to get a college education.

Cundiff, who has been an NFL kicker for over 10 years for teams such as the Cowboys, Saints, Browns, Ravens and Redskins, launched Kicking For The Dream in May of 2013, as an effort to support Colleen’s Dream Foundation, a foundation which raises money to support research for the early detection of, and improved treatment for, ovarian cancer.
He says Colleen’s Dream Foundation started in 2012 as a result of his mother-in-laws’ battle with ovarian cancer.
“Colleen felt it was important to raise money for research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer,” says Cundiff. “Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women’s health issues, we have an incredible opportunity for research and education.”
Cundiff says he appreciates having Husby's support in this effort, and looks forward to working with as many NCS Associates as he can bring to Kicking For The Dream.
“I talked to a number of NCS Associates at this year’s NCS Super Camp and there was a great deal of interest in participating in Kicking For The Dream,” says Cundiff. “I want to thank Chris for lending his voice as well. I will continue to reach out to all the NCS Associates over the next few months to enlist their help as well.
