About Me

My name is Kevin Draudt and I am a Junior at Hidden Valley High School in Roanoke Virginia. I love kicking field goals, I have so much fun doing it. This season has been kind of a quiet year for me because we have never needed many field goals because we have a great running back. My dad, David Draudt, kicked for Miami of Ohio back in the early 70's when they went to the orange bowl two years in a row. He tried out for the saints but injured his knee and was unable to kick any longer. My dad has inspired me to become a great kicker and a great person. He introduced me to kicking in the seventh grade. I have played soccer my whole life, and still do, and he took me out to kick and started me with a thirty yard field goal. I was very good from the start and immediately fell in love with kicking. I would fill up a backpack with as many footballs as it could hold, throw in my holder, and ride my bike down to the football field about two miles away whenever I could. This is my first year playing football and I absolutely love it. My dad always helps me with my technique and my mindset which are both very important. I work hard, some days I wake up early and go kick on the field next to my high school, or I go out after practice as long as I don't have too much homework. My goal is to kick for any division 1 college football team and I have worked hard so far, and I will work even harder to make that happen.

I wanted to give you a tremendous report on the kicking strap I purchased from When I originally purchased it, I was kicking about 45 yard field goals consistently (that was in March). My minor league season runs March through September, so no weight training can be attributed to this story. It was at least 90% the kicking strap. I am now in July just four months later, kicking 55 yards consistently. I recently made a 50 yarder and a 48 yarder in an All star game. My longest now is 60 yards. That is a gain of 15 yards in a very short time. One thing I noticed was the height on my kicks is tremendous. I also attribute that to the kicking strap. I am, on long field goals, making it nearly half way to the top of the goal post. On extra points now, I kick as high as the NFL regulation goal posts. Thank you so much for your website and this kicking strap. I even have had two NFL scouts call my agent for game and tape info!
