Hi, I'm Gary Reasons former NFL linebacker and this topic is about how to kickoff in a football game. Well, what you need to do if you're the kicker for your football game is have a good strong leg and you need to practice this over and over and over again. Prior to any competition. So that when you get there you'll be able to succeed. The biggest thing that you'll want to gain when you kick the football is field position. The longer you can kick the football. The better off that your team is going to be able to cover down and make the tackle and not allow the team to have good field position to start their offensive possession. So a good long kick is essential and the way you do that is through repetition and practice. You want to drive the football get it off the ground. About ten to twelve yards and drive it through. Hopefully into the end zone. So the return man will have to stay in there and be able to come out. So it's important to have a consistent approach. Where you have good timing and remember your players covering down on the kickoff team. Are going to rely on you to be consistent in your approach to the football. So that allows them to remain on sides. Where there's not a penalty against you on the kickoff them. So be consistent with your approach and have strong powerful leg.
