Multiple NFL Teams Train on the PRO-POSTS™

Teams who train on the Pro-Posts™ outperform teams who do not from all ranges.

Wins and Losses Can Often be Determined By the Kicker…

Call them skinny field goal posts, narrow uprights, thinner goal posts, or arena uprights. The Pro-Posts are a second set of uprights (9 feet) attached to the inside of the standard-width uprights (18 feet 6 inches.) It narrows the space that a kicker can make a kick for practice. Kickers who aim small on Pro-Posts, miss small in games.

Since 2002, the most common margin of victory in the NFL has been 3 points with 418 games out of 2,668 games. This is equivalent to 15.67% of games finishing with a 3 point difference between the winner and loser at the end of the game (sporting charts).

Pro-Posts create a narrower channel, forcing kickers to concentrate on kicking through a much more difficult target. Kickers have to make more accurate kicks in practice, which translates to more points in games. Combined with the Simple Kicking App, kickers significantly increase the chances of winning more games.

Since 2018, NCAA Teams who train on the Pro-Posts outperform those who do not at all ranges.

      CASE STUDY: 30-DAY TRIAL WITH SMU KICKER (2017)

      Field goal percentage was 45% better & The precision increased 41% (kicks clustered around the perfect center.)

      Practicing on skinny posts instills confidence

      Imagine a game-winning field goal attempt… everyone knows it, if you make the kick then you win, otherwise you miss… so you trot onto the field, choose your target, find your spot, line your steps from the holder’s mark, glance at your target once more and nod to your holder. In an instant, a thought comes to mind, “I know that I’m prepared, and I trust myself because I have made kicks on skinny uprights.” Placekickers are creatures of habit. When they aim small, they miss small. As Pat McAfee says, they do it “For the Brand.” Arena field goal posts are 9 feet wide, College and Professional uprights are 18 feet, 6 inches (18.5 feet), and High School regulation uprights are 23 feet, 4 inches (23.3 feet.) For example, playing for a Coach from the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA), a kicker who has skinny Pro-Posts aims at 40% of the regulation crossbar. That means when he kicks into a game the uprights look nearly 3 times as wide. Similarly, a college football or NFL kicker sees uprights that are more than twice as wide. In a crunch time kick, more kicks are made because there is more room to make the kick versus in practice.

      Testimonials

      “I think it has helped me, personally a lot… getting an aiming point…it’s kind of windy out here…”
      Eddy Piñeiro, NFL Kicker
      “We might just keep it that way… They’ve got to start putting it through that one instead of the big ones.”
      Matt Nagy, NFL Head Coach

      “The Pro-Posts helped me set my lines and steps because of the visuals it created. We do not have anything to aim at behind the goal posts on practice field. With the Pro-Posts I can play the right third, the middle, or the left third. The right third had most improvement because I can see my target line.”

      Austin Seibert, Kicker, Cleveland Browns

      “That was my first time seeing [narrow uprights] . . . It’s great competition and that’s what this game is about. Even in our room, we always talk about competing. That’s the only way you can get better and that’s all we’re trying to do.”

      Deshea Townsend, NFL Coach
      “The Pro-Posts made the difference in my college career. I used them for practice every day, warm ups especially. The smaller target makes the actual uprights look so wide. It visually made the game reps look easy.”
      Jonathan Song, Kicker, TCU
      “I love using them, it’s honestly something I feel would benefit kickers everywhere, makes the actual uprights seem much larger. Smaller target area forced me to be more precise in my aiming point, and I found myself kicking much straighter by the end of the session.”
      Spencer Evans, Kicker, Purdue

      “When I kicked the game-winner coach said it only counted if was down the middle, through the Pro-Posts. That helped me relax.”

      Division 1 College Kicker, Austin, Texas
