Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
National Camp Series (NCS) Associate, Retired NFL Punter Craig Hentrich of Legacy Kicking, has joined Kicking For The Dream’s effort to fight ovarian cancer according to NFL Kicker, and Kicking For The Dream Founder, Billy Cundiff.
"Craig is one of the best punters in the history of the NFL,” says Cundiff. “His ability to pin opponents deep in their own territory was second to none. We are excited to have Craig support Kicking For The Dream.”
Cundiff says as Hentrich has transitioned from NFL punter to punting coach, he still continues to be an inspiration to young kicking specialists.
“As he transitions to coaching specialists, his influence will only grow,” says Cundiff. “With this new platform, by joining Kicking For The Dream, he will be uniting young specialist in the state of Tennessee around our project. That is pretty special."
Hentrich said if enough people make even a small difference, it can have a large impact on beating ovarian cancer.
"I was inspired to join this as a way to make a small difference in someone's life,” says Hentrich. “If enough people make small differences, great progress can be made!"

Hentrich is among a number of NCS Associates to announce his support for the Kicking For The Dream project. Last month, NCS Founder Michael Husted was the first to support Cundiff’s 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 Hentrich’s support in this effort, and looks forward to working with all the NCS Associates who are willing to support the Kicking For The Dream project.
“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 will continue to reach out to all the NCS Associates over the next few months to enlist their help as well.”
