Freshman Kicker Pulled Up to Varsity For Playoffs!


Chris has had a great season and handled punts, kickoffs and PAT's for both the freshmen and JV teams. Chris was pulled up to Varsity and yesterday won the starting kicker job.

I got an e-mail today from one of my students’ Dad. I was pleased to find out that my student Christopher Gulla, freshman kicker at Toms River North High School in Toms River, NJ was pulled up to Varsity for the first playoff game this Saturday, November 14, 2009.  His parents are extremely proud of him as I am. Christopher attended my 2009 New Jersey Kicking Camp in Toms River, NJ and he held his own for over 12 rounds of a ‘final elimination’ competition versus a 17 year old senior kicker!

I wish Chris much success in his first Varsity football game tomorrow and I wish the Toms River North Football team a great playoff run. Please read below for comments from Mr. Gulla, Christopher’s father:

“Chris has had a great season.  He handled punts, kickoffs and PAT’s for both the freshmen and JV teams. As we enter the State playoffs Chris has been pulled up to Varsity and yesterday won the starting kicker job.

With your help and his dedication to practice, he is now kicking consistently down to the 5 yard line and regularly into the end zone.  In practice he has also kicked several 50 + yard field goals. His first varsity kick off will be tomorrow night in our first round state playoff game.” (Dennis Gulla)
