listen up guys and gals. You need to train for kicking as much or more as any position. And finding anyone that knows their stuff when it comes to kicking is not easy. For NW Kids there are a few guys around but Dan Frantz is one of he premier coaches out there.

NW Kickers Have A Top Guru In Portland

Coach Dan Franz has been coaching Kickers in the NW for many years. Go get trained by Coach Dan and get on the road to college!

 

Kickers.  I used to think Offensive linemen were the least appreciated guys on the field but I am not sure.  Linemen you need every down.  Kickers only every few downs.   But man would the game not be any fun without kickers!

So listen up guys and gals.  You need to train for kicking as much or more as any position.  And finding anyone that knows their stuff when it comes to kicking is not easy.  For NW Kids there are a few guys around but Dan Frantz is one of he premier coaches out there.

 

 

 

From Dan’s Website! http://www.nwkickingacademy.com/Home_Page.html

Dan Frantz, Instructor:

Dan has punted and kicked at every level, including the NFL. Spending time in 2001 and 2002 with the Washington Redskins Dan has both punted and kicked in NFL games. Dan received multiple honors while at Div-1 Portland State University including All-American and First Team all Conference for both kicking and punting. While playing in the Arena Football league Dan was a part of 2 AFL Championship teams(2004 San Jose – 2006 Chicago). Dan’s ability to punt and kick at an elite level gives him a clear advantage in the instruction process. Not only can he “talk the talk”, but he can “walk the walk.”
