We finally were able to get an NFL kicker on the show. We are joined today on the Too Tall Sports Podcast by Mike Hollis, the man who scored the first points with a field goal in Jacksonville Jaguars history. Mike and I discuss his often overlooked talent from high school in Eastern Washington, going the junior college route, to kicking at the University of Idaho. He finds himself undrafted and proves himself enough to get a chance with the then, San Diego Chargers but eventually became a mainstay with the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars in 1995.
We talk about the Wild Card playoff game in Buffalo and also beating the Hall of Fame talent of the Denver Broncos in the mid 90's. Mike also gives us great insight into the mechanics of kicking and mindset of what it's like when the game comes down to him and others at his position. I also talk to him about his great teammates he had in that era and what it's like playing for Tom Coughlin.
Finally, we dive into his current business for the past 14 years, ProForm Kicking Academy. Mike teaches kicking to his athletes and explains a few tips to our listeners on what goes into being a great kicker at any level.
