Doug, I asked you a couple of years ago if I should pursue kicking, and you encourged me to. Well, because of you and your site, I went from not knowing anything about kicking, to being 1st team all-league my 1st season, and 2nd team all-ohio in my 2nd season (I was never coached, I only used your site). I'm now planning to walk-on to a D-1 college. Thanks so much!
