NEW VIDEO OF FIELD GOAL PLACEMENT WITH SOLID LINE, TRAJECTORY AND DISTANCE MAY 6, 2012:
UPDATE 6/2011: This player keeps improving his technique and strength. He has shown us Pro Style Field Goal ability surpassing 55-60 yard length with tremendous trajectory. Divsion 1 Starter no question.
Paul Assad, Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting comments: Has a strong leg. Is going to develop more power as he gets older and into a program. Uses his momentum and instincts to kick field goals and kick off. Very fast thru the ball. Recommend he work on his balance and increasing his leg action range and foot speed as well as plant position and accelerating thru impact rather then release.
UPDATE APRIL 2011:
Brad has shown outstanding commitment and dedication by improving his strength working hard in the weight room and on the field. This player continues to improve his footwork and posture and leg action thru the impact slot. He will continue to improve the angle of his leg action upswing by improving his footwork. This player will be a sophomore in the fall of 2011 and had 4/3 left. He handled Punting and Kicking Duties in 2010.
UPDATE FEB. 2010: Started his Training program with Coach Paul Assad in Modesto, CA. Already, showing the ability to be coach-able. Altered foot stepping pattern and balance points, holding positions to kick thru the ball and leg action thru drills and charting and use of video at the field. Made a comment he might be interested in Delta JC if the right offer doesnt' present itself. Getting better fast.
