San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
Kicking blog Michael Husted.com is featuring an interview with retired NFL Kicker Mike Hollis on his path to the NFL, his kicking business ProForm Kicking and on being a National Camp Series (NCS) Associate.
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.
During that time Hollis:
- Connected on 200 of 250 field goals (80%)
- Scored 879 points
- Had a consecutive streak of 20 field goals
- Was voted AFC Special Teams Player of the Week 7 times
- Was selected to the 1998 Pro Bowl after leading the NFL in scoring with 134 points
- Had his best season in 2000, converting on 24 of 26 field goals (92.3%), even when he missed 4 games after his second of 3 back surgeries.
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%).
When asked in his interview with Husted Kicking.com what advice he would give young kickers, Hollis said I would tell them to Trust the Form! Adding, It is so easy for kickers, punters, and snappers to rely on athletic ability alone to perform the task. However, its the proper form and technique that win in the long run.
NCS Associates are some of the best kicking coaches in the country, says Kicking Coach Michael Husted, who created the National Camp Series (NCS) after kicking in the NFL for 9 years. Adding, 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 recently helped me at both the NCS Super Camp and the Aguiar / Husted Pro Camp earlier this year. It is apparent that kickers at every level appreciate his playing experience and his coaching ability.
