Field Goal


Joshua Villarino and Coach John Carney

"My Goal with each student is to provide 1 on 1 private instructions emphasizing on all 3 Main stages of Special Teams. Place Kicking, Kickoff, and Punting. While also offering Holding sessions, I spend time watching film and critiquing on the spot with my students. Providing proper warm up routines and developing good habits. I'm currently a college freshman playing for Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri 2024. I want to give back to my community and to the many young aspiring specialists."
