Kicking & Punting Tips
- Ray Guy explains how to use onside kicks
An onside kick can be used at any time to create a big play, but usually these kicks are employed when the game is on the line and the kicking team desperately needs the ball in the hands of its offense.
- Proper contact with ball is important for the kicker
For a soccer-style kicker, the sweet spot of the ball is about 1 ½ to 2 ½ inches down from the ball's widest segment.
- Techniques vary for punting a football
From punting to the corner, to out of the end zone, situations and objectives differ when punting a football.
- Visualization and imagery techniques key training for kickers and punters
Whether they realize it or not, kickers and punters are constantly preparing to succeed by first seeing the results of their efforts before they ever kick or punt the ball.
