Being a Kohl’s Coach for over ten years, the one thing I hear the most from athletes is talk of their star rating & ranking and what they want to achieve, especially during the Showcase season. But I wonder how many have thought about what it takes to achieve it and how to make it happen with their training? I am a big believer of setting high goals, laying out a detailed plan and doing everything in my power to try and achieve them.
As one of the top-ranked punting prospects coming out of high school, Bradley Pinion played just three seasons at Clemson before declaring for the 2015 NFL Draft.
He made his mark in the kicking camp world after charting an astounding 100-yard kickoff at the Kohl's Kicking Southern Showcase going into his senior year of high school. It still stands as a camp record.
While at Clemson, he notched a 41.1-yard career punting average that put him seventh all-time in Clemson football history and was a weapon on kickoffs. He finished his collegiate career with a 39.2-yard net punt average and 55 punts inside the 20 on 140 total punts.
He left Clemson following his junior season and was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the 5th round of the 2015 Draft, training with Jamie Kohl through his draft process. So far through two NFL seasons, Pinion has punted 191 times and is averaging 43.8 yards per punt.
