the study of the kicking components within sports

CFL East Division 2011 Specialists

Hamilton Tiger-Cats
"I think I can kick at this level and contribute to the team. I’ve been kicking well.... It would feel good [to play Toronto]. This team’s strong and hopefully we get a chance to play them. Hopefully I can score some points against them."

Montreal Alouettes
"It's a great feeling to know they're here to accommodate me. It's comforting to know they want me and I'm their guy. I can focus on the season and not guess about my role."
"I wish I'd been given another chance by my former team. But I also put myself in this situation, and there's no one to blame but myself. I should have done better in Hamilton, but God forbid I kick for 76 per cent here.... If my role is to be a positive team guy, I'll make sure I do it to the best of my abilities."

Toronto Argonauts
"I plan on playing at least another four (seasons) and then see what happens. But you start getting older and you don’t know what your body is going to do from morning to morning.... It can be somewhat discouraging. The good thing for me is Grant is a good kid and he has good character, and I am willing to work with guys like that. I used to relish the fact I was the only guy in camp. You get comfortable in your job."

Winnipeg Blue Bombers
"I've really worked on getting those kickoffs deeper. If I can put them down on the 10, inside the 10 hopefully, and stay consistent on field goals, it will be a good year."
"You're a fool if you get complacent. I don't take anything for granted. One off-day and they'll have someone in here the next day to take my job. I know that."
"I like Mr. Mom, but I’m not going to lie about it, I’m excited to be back on the field. That second pre-season game I only played seven plays so to me I’ve pretty much been off a year and a half.... It was kind of a double-edged sword. In one way I’m missing out on football and you’re watching someone else do your job for a full year. But at the same time... I got to hang out with and play with my awesome kids."
