Punter Lachlan Edwards drafted by the New York Jets

It was with great pleasure learning of Lachlan Edwards being drafted by the New York Jets today in the NFL draft.

From the first time I had the opportunity to Coach Lachlan, I knew he had the ability to become an NFL Punter.  With a natural drop and a strong ability to learn Punting, Lachlan began his journey towards meeting his Punting goals.

With existing OzPunt Punter Matthew Foster graduating from Sam Houston State University, a door was open for Lachlan to replace Matthew.  Due to the great role Matthew had played at Sam Houston State University, Special Teams Coach Discher was happy to sit with me and evaluate the film put together on Lachlan.  Shortly after our meeting Lachlan was offered a scholarship to Sam Houston State University; Coach Discher had recognised the Punting ability in Lachlan.

The hard work was just about to start for Lachlan, transferring from Ballarat University in Victoria; Australia, Lachlan took on extra studies in the American Summer, and continued to perform just as well in the class room as he did on the football field.  When I meet with people who have either played with and or Coached Lachlan, they all mention that ‘he is one hell of a Punter, but what he does in the class room is exceptional’.  Lachlan’s hard work in the class room led to him being an academic all-conference punter for three years.  One NFL Coach informed me that it was not just the hard work he puts into his football, he was impressed with the hard work he put into his studies.

The next part of Lachlan’s football career is about to start with the New York Jets.  With Lachlan’s ability to embrace hard work I’m sure we will all watch Lachlan continue Punting for many more years to come.

Success does not come from just focusing on kicking a football; you need to focus on all the aspects you have some control over.  Lachlan has modelled this for all of us setting a goal, congratulations Lachie it has been a pleasure watching your journey, and I look forward to what the future holds.

American Coaches to Attend OzPunt Camp

I wanted to let you know about a fantastic upcoming opportunity for you on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of February in Melbourne.

OzPunt and Chris Sailer will be running a 2 day camp!!!

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who has wanted to know whether they are good enough for American Football as a Punter or Kicker.

Chris Sailer from Chris Sailer Kicking is America’s largest Kicking and Punting academy, and to date no one in the US has helped more American guys into the college system.  Every year Chris Sailer Kicking has assisted numerous people starting their College and even NFL careers. More importantly, the guys starting college are on Full Scholarships.

Over the years OzPunt has had a number of guys showcasing there ability to Chris Sailer who’s training and scouting has helped them get into College.

In the past seeing Chris meant you would need to fly to the US and kick at a camp in Las Vegas.  But now thanks to Chris coming here you have saved yourself the flight and costs associated with going over to see him.

When everything is added up (camp costs, flights, accommodation, car hire, etc), previous camps in America would be well over $3,000.  The cost for the weekend camp here in Melbourne is only $330. This is a huge saving of time and money for you!

I strongly recommend that if you really want to know whether Punting or Kicking is for you, or want an Expert’s opinion on your ability; then make it along to this camp.

Spots will be limited for this event, so please register your interest in attending.
