Brent Grablachoff Discusses What Makes Miami Dolphins Kicker Jason Sanders so Consistent

MIAMI, Fla. -- Brent Grablachoff, Owner of Kicking World, a program for high school football kickers to improve their skills and earn college scholarships, recently interviewed one of his most successful students, Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders.

Jason Sanders has been working with Coach Brent Grablachoff since they first met during Jason's junior year of high school. The pair have stuck together over the years refining Sanders craft through college and today as a professional football player. Whether in Brent's camp in Austin during the offseason, or conducting video analysis virtually during the NFL season, it has made Sanders one of the top young kickers in the NFL today.

"He's unlike any other kicker I've coached before. No matter the situation he doesn't get up and he doesn't get down; he stays right in the middle, which allows him to focus on the process and not worry so much about the outcome," said Brent Grablachoff, owner of Kicking World.

During the podcast, which can be heard on DolphinsTalk.com, Brent Grablachoff discusses Jason's training regime and about his mental makeup, which allowed him to have incredible success, setting numerous records amongst NFL kickers this season. The outlook is that once his rookie contract expires next year, Jason will be in line for a very large deal.

Jason Sanders records this year include earning back-to-back AFC Special Teams Player of the Month honors - in October and November of 2020 - and connecting for a perfect 5 for 5 field goals in two different games this season already. Jason also currently holds an active NFL kicking record for the most consecutive field goals made over 50 yards this season.

Brent Grablachoff donates $500 to Hurricane Dorian Relief in the Bahamas

AUSTIN, Texas -- Kicking World owner Brent Grablachoff contributed $500 to the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund in the Bahamas, set up by the large crowdsourced funding platform GlobalGiving.

Hurricane Dorian's devastating impact caused catastrophic losses throughout the Caribbean nation of the Bahamas, particularly the small islands of The Abacos and Grand Bahama.

"I've been very fortunate to visit various islands of the Bahamas over the years and its beautiful, clear turquoise water always draws me in. It's hard to fathom the destruction that took place, with some parts of the Abaco Islands completely decimated. My thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this terrible hurricane in the Bahamas and beyond," said Brent Grablachoff, owner of Kicking World.

The GlobalGiving Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund states that all donations will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts in areas impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in The Bahamas, the United States and the Caribbean.

HS Football Preview: The Top Kickers in Texas

AUSTIN, Texas -- The largest instructional kicking camp in the country, Kicking World, announced its 2019 list of the top kickers in Texas.

"The best HS kickers and punters are in the great state of Texas. With Kicking World based in Austin we're fortunate to work with them year-round. This year's list not only encompasses the best prep specialists in Texas, but some of the top kickers in the country," said Brent Grablachoff, owner of Kicking World.

:: Seniors (2020)

Jared Zirkel
Tivy HS - Kerrville, Texas
The cannon-legged Class of 2020 kicker is verbally committed to the University of Georgia on scholarship. It will be hard for the HS senior to improve on last year's wow season where he connected on a 59 yard field goal with 63 of his 70 (90%) kickoffs going for touchbacks. Jared Zirkel has undoubtedly the biggest kicking leg in the country. The 6'3 Hill Country kicker hit a 70 yard field goal at practice and several kickoffs over 80 yards and 4.3+ seconds putting his leg strength amongst NFL kickers.

Trey McTaggart
Muenster HS - Muenster, Texas
The small German town of Muenster houses one of the most consistent HS kickers in the nation. McTaggart had a perfect 100/100 PAT streak throughout 2017, amassing 127 points his sophomore season putting him at #2 in the entire country for points by a kicker. The 2x All-State kicker holds multiple offers and turned heads on the college camp circuit winning events at Notre Dame and finishing among the top at Wisconsin.

Everett Ornstein
Langham Creek HS - Houston, Texas
The Houston product is verbally committed to UTSA on scholarship. He has emerged as one of the top kicker/punter recruits in the state. Everett has a big leg and can do all 3 - field goals, kickoffs, and punts.

Anthony Ortiz
Royse City HS - Royse City, Texas
The 5A All-District kicker only started kicking 2 years ago and has evolved quickly. He's won several Kicking World field goal and kickoff events. Anthony completed his junior year football season with a perfect 9/9 FG and 14/14 PAT.

Perrin Teer
Huntington HS - Huntington, Texas
Perrin has a big kickoff leg and a field goal range from inside 55 yards. The All-District kicker shows a lot of potential and if he can get some in-game opportunities this season colleges should start coming around. Perrin has a 1240 SAT score.

Alejandro Chavarria
Central Catholic HS - San Antonio, Texas
Alejandro switched from soccer to football just a year ago and was very raw at the start but made huge progress in less than a few months. The quick learner can do all 3 (FG/KO/P) and has one of the strongest legs of HS kickers in San Antonio.

:: Juniors (2021)

Justin Bohrer
Cedar Park HS - Cedar Park, Texas
Last season the junior helped propel the Timberwolves into the 2nd round of the Texas HS Football state playoffs with a 37 yard game-winning overtime field goal. Justin Bohrer is listed as the top Class of 2021 kicker on the Kicking World Hot Prospect List, ranking him as one of the best kickers in the nation. The Cedar Park product is poised for a big junior season and is scholarship ready.

Garrett Stiles
Seguin HS - Seguin, Texas
The 6'2 kicker made All-District and All-Area honors last season. Garrett has a big kickoff leg and although he only had a few kicks in-game last year, he's got the big kick range and with more in-game opportunities this season he will get college offers.

Tripp Daniel
St Michael's Catholic Academy - Austin, Texas
The top private school kicker in Austin hit a 42 yard field goal last season with 7 of 8 made (88%) and 21 of his 22 PATs (95%) showing a very consistent sophomore campaign. The St Michael's kicker has a 29 ACT.

Nick Hernandez
Ronald Reagan HS - San Antonio, Texas
Following a very impressive HS career from former Reagan kicker Steven Opella who's now off to the University of Nevada, Nick looks to make his mark on Varsity this season. Hernandez can do all 3 - field goals, kickoffs, and punts, and shows a lot of upside and should start getting interest from colleges very soon.

:: Sophomores (2022)

Buck Buchanan
Hallsville HS - Hallsville, Texas
One of Kicking World's youngest Hot Prospects, Buck had an impressive performance at the 2018 National Showcase where he finished near the top of his class and in the upper tier of over 60 kickers who attended from over 20 states. The HS sophomore has shown he can kick field goals from 55 yards out and kickoffs deep in the end zone. He's an under-classmen kicker that should turn heads this season.
