President’s Day was a good day for 3-Step Kicking. We were invited to help The Kicking Coach, Filip Filipovic, run a kicking camp in Pekin, IL We were honored to be asked as we have a great deal of respect for Coach Filipovic, a successful college kicker and punter who has played for 6 NFL teams.
Over 40 student athletes attended the camp, which ran from 9:30 in the morning till 6 pm. We opened with fundamental drills, then hands-on field goal, punting, and kickoff training, and ended with video analysis. All in all, a great day.
We got to coach alongside NFL players, Marshall Koehn (Minnesota Vikings), Mike Meyer (Atlanta Falcons), and retired NFL player Ryan Donahue (Detroit Lions). But that wasn’t all — we also got to compete against them during the coaches challenge. Our campers loved that!

Looking forward to helping out The Kicking Coach again soon. We’re setting up our own camp schedule now, so stay tuned for details!
