Football Season Kick Offs

E-mail Print


The football season in the US has kicked off at the College Level, and the first week of games saw some great Kicking and Punting.

While many of the boys will be putting on their boots and pulling up their socks for their second and third seasons, a few hard working men will be playing their first season, an extra special best of luck to you all. 

With their goals set for the season on what they want to achieve, it is good to see that some are already breaking records and now have some more goals to set. 

In Australia it is that time of year when we swing into our training camps, with the weather getting better every weekend, it is time to start thinking about attending a training camp. 

Last weekend saw our Melbourne camp produce some talented Punters who I have no doubt will be making the move to a College football team if they can continue where they left off after the weekend.

Over summer we will again see American College Coaches visit Australia to search for their next teams Punter or Kicker, hopefully this will again see some of our Punters and Kickers get scouted and make the move to the US. 

With still a lot of camps coming up over the next few months, it is a great time to come along and have a kick.  As we always say at OzPunt, it is never to late or too early to give it a go, and see whether this is something for you.

South Australian OzPunt Punter Nathaniel Miller is currently in America taking his shot at an NFL contract.

Nathaniel has been training in South Australia as part of a group of OzPunt boys trying either for the NFL or College Scholarship opportunities. 

Nathaniel has a background playing AFL football, which he has played all his life.  It is his AFL football background which has given him a good base to work from to pick up NFL Punting.  Nathaniel has been working hard and applied himself to get to where he is today.

Under the watchful eye of OzPunt Adelaide Coach Matthew Manfield, Matthew believes Nathaniel is a great shot to make it into the NFL.  As Matthew knows, it all comes down to a few kicks, but is confident Nathaniel will represent himself well to American Coaches while he is in the US showing his Punting abilities to coaches and NFL teams.

Everyone who has meet Nathaniel to date have nothing but good things to say about his ability and the way he applies himself to receiving his opportunity to show case himself in America.

We all wish you the best Nathaniel and hope you get out what you put into your Punting.
