Through the Uprights - Ep 1: A Tale of Two Groza Winners/The Beach Bum

Chapter 1: This is the story of how two different kickers used the same strategy to climb from rock bottom to become the best amateur kickers in the country. Lou Groza Award winners Alexis Serna (Oregon State Beavers) and Brad Craddock (University of Maryland Terrapins) came close to quitting for different reasons, but the way they overcame obstacles was the same. These two kickers explain the mindset of “kicking not to miss” and how it almost ruined their promising kicking careers. Chapter 2: This chapter was inspired by a conversation with former Syracuse Orange kicker Cole Murphy in the summer of 2019. In that conversation, Murphy explained that he felt all the best kickers had a “beach bum” like quality to them. The concept became the starting point for this entire podcast series. Are all great kickers like “beach bums”? Had reporter Cole Weinstein uncovered the predictive personality trait that determined whether someone could make it big as an elite college or NFL kicker? We answer those questions with the help of NFL veterans Pro Bowler John Carney (San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints) and Pro Football Hall of Famer Morten Andersen (New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons), whose careers each spanned over two decades in the NFL. Interviews include Alexis Serna (Oregon State Beavers), Brad Craddock (University of Maryland Terrapins), Morten Andersen (New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons), John Carney (San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints), Nate Kaeding (San Diego Chargers), and more.
