I wasn't heavily recruited out of High School or drafted into the NFL. However, I worked very hard and created opportunities.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
This week, Michael Husted, a nine year NFL kicker, launched his blog to help kicking specialist reach their kicking potential and their dreams.
Husted, who played for the Tampa Bay Bucs and the Oakland Raiders, says his goal for the blog is to help other kicking specialists reach the dream he has lived.
“I’ve been very fortunate to have been able to play in the NFL for nine years,” says Husted. “It was always my dream to be on the field for a Sunday game. Now that I am retired from professional football, I would like to help others reach the dream I lived.”
Husted who created the National Camp Series(NCS) says that unlike many NFL players, he was not picked in the draft, but had to earn his way onto a roster.
“Considering the path I had to take to get onto an NFL roster, I have a lot of empathy for young kicking specialists who feel they have been ‘overlooked’,” Husted said. “My goal is to share my experience with kickers so they can have both the skills and the perspective to move towards their goal of playing football whether it’s on a high school team, a college team or in the NFL.”
Husted’s says he is starting his blog by talking about his own experience going from sand-lot football to the high school team, on to college (and college hazing) and then to the NFL.
“Football is not just about the skills,” says Husted, “it’s also about the experiences a kicker has, and how they handle those experiences. That’s why I am starting my blog with my experiences on my journey to the NFL.”
Since retiring from the NFL, Husted continues to work ‘one on one’ with aspiring kicking specialist through his own Kicking Academy, and the National Camp Series (NCS).
