Hollis began his kicking career back in 1985 serving as the kicker on his junior high school football team and continuing throughout high school, college and eventually the NFL. After high school, Hollis chose to play at the community college level and eventually walked on at the University of Idaho (Division 1-AA).
He began his professional career in 1994 with the San Diego Chargers (pre-season only) and retired in 2003, spending seven years with the Jacksonville Jaguars, one year with the Buffalo Bills, and one year with the New York Giants.
Hollis presently holds some very impressive rankings in NFL history.
He is in the top 5 of highest percentages in field goals over 50 yards (13/19, 68.4%); top 10 in accuracy over 40+ yard field goals (63/92, 68.5%); top 5 in field goal accuracy in the playoffs (16/18, 88.8%); and top 20 in overall field goal accuracy (80.0%).
Kicking coach Michael Husted, who created the National Camp Series (NCS) after kicking in the NFL for nine years, says he is excited about the 2013 NCS season, and working with coaches like Mike Hollis.
“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.”
“Mike Hollis is a great kicking coach,” says Husted. “He helped me coach at the 2013 Super Camp in Orlando and the Husted Kicking Pro Camp in Boca Raton, FL and it is apparent that kickers at every level appreciate his playing experience and his coaching ability.”
Husted says, with excellent coaching and by utilizing its Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, NCS provides skill development and an objective evaluation platform for student-athletes who want to showcase their capabilities to colleges and universities for recruiting purposes.
“Using the KIX 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,” says Husted.
Husted says 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."
