Drew Meyer is a Special Teams Analyst at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. This episode covers his outlook on kicking and punting.
The episode covers how the late Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and Michigan State Punter Mike Sadler made an impact on how he recruits kickers and punters. Meyer highlights that he is looking for characters that resemble the remarkable qualities of two souls that left us too soon.
Meyer walked on as a punter at the University of Wisconsin and he shares how his playing experience has transferred to coaching and recruiting kickers as a Division 1 special teams college analyst.
Early in his coaching career, Meyer is taking lessons learned from college teammates Russell Wilson (Seattle Seahawks) Monte Ball (Denver Broncos) and what he learned from top punters at camps like Thomas Morstead, Tommy Townsend, and many others. Not only does he have 4 seasons under his belt coaching at the highest level of college football, but he has deep relationships with the best punters and kickers in the game.
This episode covers what attributes he looks for in a kicker, memorable stories from Kohl’s Kicking Camps, and gratitude. Meyer drew insight from listening to the Podcast with Thomas Morstead, who is the punter for the New Orleans saints.
