San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2013
St. Louis kicking coach Dave Brader, of Husted Kicking, has been selected to coach at the National Camp Series (NCS) Super Camp VII being held February 16-17, 2013, in Orlando, FL.
The NCS Super Camp VII is a two day kicking camp which will feature some of the country’s best high school kickers, punters and snappers.
A future in professional football was never one of Brader’s goals; professional baseball, however, was in his sight. It was at a regional workout for the Atlanta Braves in 1999 when Brader picked up a football someone was throwing and punted it; as luck so has it, a scout for the St. Louis Rams was there with his son, the rest as they say, is history.
Brader began fine tuning his skills and with the coaching of WGHS grad and former NFL coach Hank Kuhlmann c/o ‘54, Ray Pelfrey, Kelly Goodburn and Louie Aguiar, signed an NFL contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2005 before a career ending injury forced him to the sideline in 2006.
Since the injury his focus has been on coaching the kicking game and kicking lessons and kicking camps. Brader has coached with former NFL kickers Louie Aguiar and Michael Husted at their annual Pro Camp since 2006.
Brader has coached numerous area kickers and punters and athletes from University of Texas, University of Wisconsin, Kansas University, University of Iowa, St. Ambrose College, University of Missouri, Lindenwood University and Missouri State in his kicking lessons and kicking camps.
Michael Husted, who founded NCS after kicking in the NFL for 9 years, is now a kicking coach in San Diego, CA. He says Super VII is about great coaches, great instructions and great evaluations and he is looking forward to having Brader coaching at Super Camp VII.
"All of our NCS coaches are eager to get down to Orlando in February to help teach as well as evaluate the top kickers, punters and long snappers from all across the country and outside the US,” says Husted. "This is the only camp where high school specialists will have a chance to work with some of the best kicking coaches in the world."
"The quality of instructors for our Super Camp is outstanding and continues to grow every year,” says Husted. “The NCS Network is committed to helping young athletes learn proper technique as well as to help them navigate through the recruiting process so that they can leverage their sport to get a college education.”
Husted says that by utilizing its Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, NCS provides an objective evaluation platform for student-athletes who want to showcase their capabilities to colleges and universities for recruiting purposes.
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."
