Dear Chris and Andy,
The second game was a win, 31-21, and it was a good game for TJ. He was very busy. He did kick offs, PATs and one field goal attempt. His kick offs were very good.
He made all of his PATs. The team was at 4th down, and needed a few yards for a 1st down, but didn't make it. Then Coach Mitchell sent TJ in to attempt a 40 yard field goal, and he made it. It was high, and appeared have been a good clean kick.
I personally feel that the training is paying off. TJ said that he felt better about kicking this year than he did last year. When he goes on the field, he looks more confident, and relaxed. We truly thank God for directing us to your camp. It was well worth the cost.
Well, just wanted to give you an update on TJ.
That’s all for now

Dear Chris and Andy,
Just want to say thanks so much for an awesome camp. Hunter had a great time and came away with valuable information and instruction for improvement. He so wants to go to the next level and is willing to work hard for it. He was very excited and we talked all the way home about what he needs to do to get there. He has mapped out a plan and set his goals.
As a parent, I appreciate all the information you gave us as well to help our sons achieve their goals. Every little bit helps us gain more insight into what needs to be done. I am all over this video. I know it will be a busy road for recruitment, but we are very excited at the possibilities that lie ahead for Hunter.
Thanks again and please keep Hunter in mind for recruitment!!!!!!!!!!!

Good work this week on the private lessons. Rich went 3 for 3 on Field Goals (32, 42, and 43 by halftime)! By the way the first two were left hash, and last was right hash. Rich by the end of the game kicked 4 of 4 to go up by 9 points with 2:30 left in the game. However, the Packers won by 3 points and Rich got a radio interview after game. Priceless!
Stan Moore-November 5, 2009
Just to give you an update on Jacob Moore. Jacob has done pretty well so far with PAT and field goals. He has attempted 30 PATs and made 26. His first and only field goal of the season came last Friday night against Tift and it was a 44 yarder right down the middle. His kick offs have been good with no one returning any. He has kicked a lot of squib kick offs and some deep ones to the 5 and 10 yard line. He also kicked two onside kicks which we recovered both. He has been picked "Player of the week" two times by Coach Eldridge.
Cole Evans-November 30, 2009
I have been kicking great this year. I have made 2 out of 3 field goals so far this season. I am 13 of 13 on extra points. My kick-offs have been pretty good, several in the end zone with a hang time around 4 seconds. I have been punting a lot too. I have averaged 38 yards a punt and 3.4 second hang time. Hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you for all that you have done for me.
Rusty Wilder-November 27, 2009
I have wanted to thank you for the talk you gave Brian at the end of our last session, those words coming from you impressed him and he has responded well. He has played three games since, these games like previous games have been high scoring games and he has had a lot of kicking time. Last week his kickoffs were coming down around the 5 yard line, which as you know, works out to 55 yards, some were 60 yards if diagonal. His directional control was good, they all came down in the area he wanted them to and they stayed in bounds.
Coach Boggs announced the players that were moving up to varsity and Brian made the list which is hard to do. Tomorrow night he plays in his first varsity game, the varsity has 4 remaining games left in the regular season. The varsity is also undefeated and the possibility of going to the playoff looks good for them.
Kathy (his mom) told me that he told her that on Tuesday in practice from the 30 yard line he kicked 29 consecutive field goals missed 1 then kicked 10 more consecutive before calling it quits.
In short, he has got his leg back and he is progressing well. Thanks again for your help.

Just wanted to send you some pictures of Ed dressed out for the game this Saturday. He is very excited! Thanks to you all of this would not have been possible had you not believed in him, encouraged him and guided him....THANK YOU!

“Top Recruit Kicking, Inc - Thanks for all your support and help at the Grand Valley camp this past summer. We have been to a number of camps this summer and have seen a variety of instructional technique used. I was really impressed with the “video breakdown session” of your camp. I was able listen to Chris, Andy and Eddie breakdown the video footage of Austin and learn for myself what areas he needs to improve in to be a better kicker. Now I am not just a ball retrieval system anymore.”
Mark Hudson - August 25, 2009
I was just checking in to see how Kevin and Ryan are doing with their kicking and punting?
VP Top Recruit Kicking
Doing well, opened up with Glenwood in Alabama with a 21 to 6 win. Three of four kickoffs were out of the end zone, with the other one at the one yard line. Four punts 65, 54, 44 and 41. No returns on three punts but one punt had a return. Kevin went three out of three on extra points. Your work on kick offs and punts has really helped and Kevin gives you the credit. Thanks!
Ronnie Dobbins - July 29, 2009
I wanted to let you know that VSU called Will last week. We had a meeting with VSU Coach Will Weaver. Will made the VSU Team as a preferred walk-on. He is thankful for the help you have given him and would like to have more lessons with you soon. Thanks.
Mike J Myrick - June 11, 2008
As you may know Shawn Myrick will be attending Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College to place-kick this fall. Shawn has attended camps at Southern Miss in previous years that are put on by you all. Shawn had a great past three years kicking in high school and part of that is attributed to attending Top Recruit Kicking camps at Southern Miss. Thank you
Carey Spear - September 30, 2008
Dear Coach McInally and Coach Gibbs, “Currently I am halfway through my high school football season in Mayfield, Ohio. Our team has been very successful so far (5-1) and is currently ranked #1 in our region. I am fortunate enough to have had a fairly successful season as well. I made three field goals in three attempts in our opening game, including a 45-yard FG and a school record 51-yard FG in the final seconds to defeat our opponents. Overall, I have made seven field goals this year so far in six games and am 100% on my XP attempts. I'm doing well on my kickoff distance and hang time as well. Last weekend, I kicked one that hit the goalpost (over 70 yards)! I just wanted to thank you for spending time with me during camp and helping me become a better and more consistent kicker. Without your help, who knows what would have happened that opening night. Please pass this note along to Coach Murray as well. Once again, thank you for all of the coaching tips and helping me during that camp. It meant a lot.”
Joe Allen - July 28, 2008
Thanks again for a great eye opening camp! Also with the help from the camp Jimmy has improved his hang time. He was averaging 3.6 before and his best around 3.8. Now his best is a 4.5 and frequently hits above 4.1.
John Roggeman - July 21, 2008
I wanted to thank you for taking the extra time to work with my son, Chad, after the kicking competition last Friday night. You spent a good deal of time giving him useful advice that will make him a better punter. We appreciate your insight and thank you again for your professionalism!
Bonnie - July 21, 2008
Andrew really enjoyed your camp and was excited to meet Eddie Murray! I felt comfortable leaving him in your hands, and felt that your camp was there to teach and actually help all of the boys, not just to take their money and talk to the junior and senior boys about recruiting. I can't say that about the last camp he attended. Andrew would like to attend your camp at GVSU next year again but won't be attending the other MI camp. I would like to let you in on a secret - the "other" camp was University of Michigan. Yep, your camp beat them. “One instructor” impressed Andrew, but the rest of the camp staff did not. Thanks again! - Bonnie
Mr. & Mrs. Mario Diaz - July 21, 2008
We would like to thank the professional team for coaching our son Jose at Grand Valley University. It was Jose's first time at a kicking camp, he felt comfortable and well instructed. He enjoyed the individual attention and how they reviewed the films and techniques. This has helped him pick up some new techniques and football fundamentals that he will utilize in the future. Chris, Andy and Eddie, thank you for answering our questions, and have a wonderful and safe year.
Jay Gorter - July 21, 2008
I just wanted to say thanks for the camp this past weekend in Grand Rapids. Jake had a blast and learned a ton! He started soccer camp today and still had Eddie’s shoes on from the camp. It was pretty funny when we got back to my parents Sunday and my dad asked Jake if he had Eddie to sign the shoes. Jake told him there really wasn't any reason to have him sign them since the autograph would disappear during the season. Thanks again.
Top Recruit Kicking, Inc - Thanks for all your support and help at the Grand Valley camp this past summer.

You had my son Ben at camp in Dublin last weekend. I was VERY impressed. Ben (and I) both learned a lot about the fundamentals of kicking. My two sons have been to many (soccer, football, basketball, etc) camps. I have not experienced any other camps where I felt that the instructors were more interested in teaching the kids than at yours. Thanks again. Great camp! Keep on teaching… you guys do a great job.
I want to thank you for all the extra attention you gave my son, Jordan, this weekend at the Dublin (Columbus) camp. I fully expected him to come home frustrated and exhausted. Instead, he feels encouraged and is anxious to keep working. You have no idea how grateful I am to see this new dedication to what he loves most.
I want to take a moment to thank Chris and Andy for all their help during and following their camps. Not only did they give me plenty of 1 on 1 instruction, but also taught me new drills and techniques to use on my own. After camp they got my name and stats out and helped me establish relationships with college coaches. Through their contacts, Chris and Andy found schools that fit my interests, and provided them with my camp results and their assessment of my abilities. Without their help, I would not have been looked at or contacted by the University of Southern Mississippi. My highest recommendation and thanks go out to Top Recruit Kicking, Inc.. I look forward to using their services in the future.
Top Recruit Kicking's private instructions provided the skills and confidence needed for my son to kick a 40 yard field goal for the margin that won them the semi-final game at the Georgia Dome and allowed them to advance to the state championship. Andy and his company are real professionals.
Kevin and Chris Kovanda
Thanks so much for the time you've spent with Scott developing his punting skills. Although Scott has been to a number of camps, your instruction has proven to be the most concentrated and in-depth. Your camp was very well run and organized. You not only taught him the proper techniques to increase hang time and distance, you also instilled in him the confidence to perform. This was clearly demonstrated at the Chris Sailer National Kicking Event held in Las Vegas this January. Scott placed in the 'Elite Top 12' and he now moves on to the 'Exclusive Top 12' Kicking Camp in Los Angeles this summer. This would not have been possible without your expertise and excellent teaching ability. Thanks again. We look forward to your continued instruction of Scott as he strives to meet his goal of punting at the collegiate level.
My son thought your camp this week was better than the (competitors of Top Recruit Kicking) camps he has attended two summers because of the more focused individual attention. Thanks!
Coach Tyson Helton
University of Alabama Birmingham
The staff at Top Recruit Kicking are excellent hands on instructors. Any kicking specialist that is fortunate enough to attend their camp will surely benefit from their instruction.
I just wanted to drop you a note and express my gratitude to the both of you regarding the help that you gave my son David during your camp at Gross Point North this weekend. David said that he really enjoyed your camp and learned a great deal from the both of you. With your help he now understands the importance of stretching properly (which resulted in his first 45 yd field goal at your camp). He is looking forward to the up-coming year on varsity as their schools first soccer style kicker (a barrier that was difficult to overcome). I know that his personnel skills have improved and he will be better equipped to help his team gain greater success. Thanks Again!
Thank you Chris and Andy for taking time to help Kurtis. Your camp was very organized and you gave very valuable information to both the kickers and their parents. You came through after the camps were over, Andy coming out to Lowndes to provide Kurtis some expert guidance when he was in a slump last year and Chris following up with Kurtis’ progress and making phone calls to college coaches. I always felt like we could call on you and that you both walk the walk not talk the walk. We will recommend you to any other kickers that are interested in perfecting their game and hope to pursue kicking in their future. Again, we thank you for all your help
