Jan Stenerud's Kicks and Tips

Greetings! I am Jan Stenerud, Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 1991. Since this is my first appearance on NFLHS.com, I will provide you with a little biographical information about myself. I was a place kicker in the AFL and NFL from 1967 thru 1985. I was with the Kansas City Chiefs for 13 season, the Green Bay Packers for four seasons, and I spent two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. When I retired, I had kicked the most career field goals in NFL history.

In the coming weeks, I'm looking forward to providing you with helpful advice on the art of soccer-style kicking, as well as answering your questions. I am living proof that if you work hard and understand the basic fundamentals of soccer-style kicking, it is possible to become an accomplished kicker. I did not attempt to kick a football until I was 22 years old!

I was attending Montana State University on a skiing scholarship, and in the fall of 1964, my junior year, I kicked a football for the first time. Following a half-dozen kicks with my toes making contact with the ball, I began to kick with my instep. That was the beginning of a 19-year pro career.

I had played a lot of soccer as a youth in my native country of Norway, but I had to develop my kicking style by trial and error. Maybe I can help you avoid some of the pitfalls I faced.

Are you interested in becoming an outstanding kicker? Perhaps good enough to earn a college scholarship or even a spot on an NFL roster? It can happen.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your goals!

I really have learned how to improve my kicking form. I like being able to see the video and chat with a professional player. There is so much to learn, and your site helps me get practical information from a pro. Even my kicking coach, Marc Primanti, the Lou Groza Award winner in 1996, thinks it has great information and was really impressed with the content. Thanks for making this a useful site for everyone

Doug and Tommy's Frequently Asked Questions: "I have been kicking lately and seen that something just isn't right. My steps are the same, but my point of contact on the ball changes from kick to kick. On kick the ball might be on my ankle, and then the next time it might be on my toe. Then I will have a series of kicks where I hit the sweet spot. What are some things I can do to improve my contact?" -- Click here to read our answer
