I had the privilege to work with Coach Brent in the late summer of 2010 and I owe my success to him. Coach Brent came out to Hawaii and was able to adjust my approach, follow-through, and add accuracy and distance to my kicks; even with the heavy swirling wind! Coach cleaned up my field goal kick, showed me the proper way to kick a kickoff and even helped me learn how to kick the pop-up onside kick. Coach Brent is a veteran kicker and teacher that was able to coach me efficiently and I quickly learned and applied what he taught me. I had a very efficient first year as a varsity kicker, and I greatly look forward to my senior season. Mahalo to Coach Brent Grablachoff for his assistance!
