Kick a football 4

September 20, 2019


at this point is where I’d like to mention about how you get the football up in the air we’re talking right now about kicking off the ground because that’s what Richie does in the NFL were off the ground and college or off the ground for high school kickers are still kicked off the two in one inch blocks the mechanics really aren’t that different later on you’re just gonna have to adjust your plant foot out a little bit wider and possibly back some but really if you can kick off the ground kicking off the block is easy the other reason the plant foot is where we want it as far as the depth in front or behind the ball is to get the ball up in the air you need to imagine that your your kicking leg is is rotating on a point through your hip I mean if you’re like you go around in a circle around your hip it would so the idea of getting the ball up in the air let’s pretend that my arm is my kicking leg and this is my hip that’s my kicking leg to make the ball go up in the air I need to be striking the ball not here not here but just as my foot is starting to rise and in this position we can see as Richie does a no-step you you’ll see his foot his leg will rotate and be coming up just just a little bit as he hits the ball if he were to move his plant foot forward he’d be striking the ball on the downward swing or possibly right at the bottom of the arc and it would come off his foot flat so if he gets too deep you won’t get any height if he gets too far behind the ball his foot will be coming up too much he’ll hit the ball fat and he will hit the ball in the middle of the ball instead of just under the center line and won’t have any chance of getting the proper rotation so the the plant foot is the most important part of kicking because if you don’t have that right you don’t get the height you don’t get the accuracy okay rich is going to do a few more a few more no steps now as you do these you’ll you’ll learn to feel what leglock is and if you hear your foot slapping the ball and it sounds sloppy it’s it’s not it’s not leg lock you should hear a good solid thump when your foot makes contact with the ball

  1. This is one of the best kicking videos available. While it's definitiely a bit dated with the clothing the guys wear hehe, Coach Hoffman knows his stuff and his tips are timeless. I recommend all my kicking & punting students buy this video.

  2. @Andrew598895 Type in American Football and watch. Its the most popular sport in America. We play it in the parks, in our yards, and watch it on the TV. Its a fun sport to play!

  3. I can squat 200lbs but have no soccer background can I be a kicker still? BTW im turning 16 in january and football tryouts are in may is it possible to be the kicker for my football team?

  4. @TheNickiminaj1024 I dont get out much eh? Well i didnt live in the 1980's. And im Classy, so i think girls shouldnt have a mouth on them like that. its not attractive at all.

  5. @TacticNerve1107 haha yea its called gridiron or just NFL here 😛 ii watched a game a few days ago: Denver Broncos vs Steelers. it was a great game but i just didn't like how the play stopped every few minutes. but still a great game 😀

  6. @wildcole11 Yea NFL stands for National Football League. It does get a little boring with the plays stopping but it's always fun to watch people make great plays like the QB of the Bronco's Tim Teebow (Even though he's not good, he's making lucky throws and game saving plays)

  7. I don't think you get lucky as often as he does at some point you have to give em credit!!! He is not the best QB but he is the best for that team and that teams chemistry.

  8. um thanks for replying 6months later -.- and i know this shit aint rugby.. im from New Zealand dumb ass! 😉
