Mind of McCabe: Are you the next kicking sensation?

With the release of our brand new CFC10 Specialists Rankings, it’s worth shining a light on the unique world of kicking. We’re in the year 2019 folks, so I’m not here to hammer the old argument that kickers aren’t people too, but rather explore the fascinating skill set that makes their journey usually one of the most interesting, yet least talked about in football. You may even be forging your own kicking journey without even realizing it yet.

I don’t know many kids who signed up for football at a young age because they had a strong desire to kick an oval ball five times on a Sunday afternoon instead of playing the round ball version that let’s you kick it around for 90 minutes. Generally soccer players switch allegiance early in life because they’d rather hit human beings than a ball anyways. I remember during my first year of tyke football, our coaches held a makeshift rendition of “Who’s Got Talent?” by just lining everybody up from 10 yards out to see if anybody could kick. In the end they decided to cancel the contest and only sent the field goal team out when it seemed like luck was on our side that day, which was determined by if we recovered the impromptu opening onside kickoff.
