Upon graduating from the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, where he set several school records for punting, Chris had the opportunity to experience the NFL first hand. He was invited to attend camps with the New York Jets, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, after which he was given, tryouts with the Seattle Seahawks, Cincinnati Bengals, New Orleans Saints, and the Dallas Cowboys. Chris enjoyed the chance to experience the inner workings of the NFL, something few people ever achieve, while making lifelong friends in the process.

Chris’ love of the game and his talent for kicking and punting has inspired him to mentor others and believes that living the experience through the young men is more gratifying than doing it yourself. It is through this opportunity that the love of the game and the journey is so rewarding.

Coach Chris has spoken at AFCA several times, flown across the country to work with several colleges, including working with over 200 high school coaches to break down the kicking, punting and snapping game. Chris develops trains, and mentors’ kickers, punters and snappers all over the country while instilling a strong work ethic, and solid foundation along with a winning attitude. Chris provides extensive kicking, punting and snapping training via individual and group lessons, as well as nationally acclaimed Special Team Camps. Since 2007, KICKNATION has hosted over 165 University college camps nationwide.

Chris held 7 punting records for the Ragin Cajuns for 20 years. He was 1997/1998 All-Louisiana Punter. Chris still holds 12 records at opposing colleges for punting. Chris graduated college on the Dean’s list.

Chris has unparalleled business and athletic credentials. With his many years of experience on the field, he brings both technical knowledge and thorough understanding of football from both the playing and coaching perspectives. The level of insight Chris received during the NFL camps and tryouts, along with his high school and college punting accolades, has afforded Chris and his KICKNATION team the opportunity to train and develop some of the top kickers, punters and snappers across the country.
