It was called The Golden State Kicking Challenge. I invited all the kicking schools I knew to be a part of this. Quite a few joined in the effort, even if they were from out of state. Kohl`s Kicking, Zendejas Kicking, West Coast Kicking Academy, Snap-Hold-Kick, and Mike Lansford Kicking were all sponsors. I have five sons, and my fourth son, Luke, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was just six years old. That`s the reason we`re helping to find a cure. The event attracted 44 kickers, snappers, and punters, and raised almost $1,500 for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). We had kickers from 7th grade all the way through college kickers competing. Luke was the only 7th grader, but he beat all the 8th graders to win the Youth FG competition. What was really cool is that a Soph won the Frosh/JV kickoff and FG competitions........and after the competition was over, his mom came up to me to tell me that he too was a Type 1 Diabetic. Here`s a few pics from the day. That`s my first grandson getting an early start in the kicking game! Luke kicking off. Luke watching a FG. Jake kicking a FG.
