NFL veteran Darren Bennett and his son, Will, helped Michael Husted coach kickers at the Inaugral Annual Husted Kicking College Senior Pro Camp in San Diego on January 14-15, 2012.
“For our first College Senior Pro Camp, we thought it was a great success," says Husted, who played in the NFL for nine years. Adding, "We had kickers and punters from all college divisions. Two of our kickers will be playing in post season senior bowl games."
Bennett, who kicked for the Chargers and Vikings, was considered to be one of the best punters in the NFL. He made multiple Pro Bowl teams, and was named as the punter on the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 1990’s.
College seniors who attended the camp had a chance to showcase their skills, compete with other kickers and punters and gained valuable insights into the game from Husted and Bennett.
This College Senior Pro Camp was the first in a series of three events to help kickers prepare for and reach their goal of playing professional football. The next event, which is this weekend, is the Pro Qualification Camp (Las Vegas - Jan 21-22.) These two camps lead up to the Annual College and Pro Camp (Las Vegas - March 31 - April 5).
For college seniors, the College Senior Pro Camp provided kickers with the necessary information on how to prepare and train for their College/University Pro Day, private team workouts, NFL mini-camps and NFL training camps.
"This camp educated and prepared kickers and punters on what to expect as they transition from college to the professional level," said Husted.
Along with the training in technique, the kickers and punters received state of the art biomechanics testing and a personalized workout regimen from strength coach Ryan Flaherty and a personal NFL style workout video in HD for NFL teams to view.
“We will also be offered guidance in the agent selection process as well as tips on how to best positions yourself with NFL Teams,” said Husted. “Our goal was to prepare college seniors on ‘all’ facets of what it takes during their journey to play professional football.”
Husted said considering the sucess of this year's College Senior Pro Camp, it will no doubt become a 'must attend' kicking camp for any college senior looking to pursue their dream of playing professional football.
