Survival of the Consistent

Your practice should mirror reality, not deny it.

Special teams coaches only care about reliability but specialists spend the bulk of their time training their ability.

Teeing up from 60 yards with hurricane force winds at your back to catch a personal best that you can post on IG while blasting some Lil’ Baby in the background is an inefficient use of your training time.

The red zone begins at a 37 yard field goal. Unless you are a kicking master from 37 yards and in, your coach will not let you take any shots beyond that.
