So, my cousin is 24 years old, about 6'0", and he is an excellent Punter/Kicker.
We are currently in the process of getting a professional video camera to film him doing field goals and punts at the local high school football stadium.
Just to give you an idea, he lives in Houston, Texas (very humid air) and went 18/20 on 64-yd FG attempts...I know that it wasn't a game situation, but 64-yds is still a hell of a kick. If he had the chance to play in Denver, that might add a yard or 2 to his kick with the thin air.
He is also a great Punter as well. He did some punting (20 punts), and averaged 69 yards a punt (shortest was 59 yards, longest was 78), and that is of course without the bounce. He also had some great hangtimes, I don't recall exactly what his best one was, but it was in the 5.3 range (not certain though).
I've contacted other teams about possible tryouts, and I even got him a tryout for the Houston Texans. He was placed on a farm team, but due to the head coach of the team, Dustin (my cousin), felt that it wasn't going to help him get any better by being there, and decided to leave. He played 6 games there, and hit several 60 yard field goals in game situations.
I'm still working on getting him a tryout for the Texans, because he lives in Houston, but I'm a Denver Bronco fan forever I was thinking "Hey...Dustin could go kick in Denver!"
So, I know this isn't a forum where say, members from the Denver Front Office are; it's just a fan board. But, is there anyone here who could hook me up with contact information to the Denver Scouting Agents, or anyone in the Denver Front Office for me to send videos and schedule possible tryouts???
Thanks, and I know it seems kind of far fetched, but I really think Dustin has what it takes to be the next great kicker in Denver, and I hope you all might support me in my attempt to get him signed to a farm-team for Denver and hopefully a.s.a.p, get him a contract to be playing on sundays...
Thanks for reading!
edit: I realize I posted this thread in 2 different forums, I didn't know which would be more appropriate to post in. Mods, you can close 1 or the other either way.
