It looks like Nate Kaeding knows what he plans on doing after he is done “kicking balls through poles”. He started writing for The Gazette, an Iowa Paper, and here is a snippet of his work:
But let’s be real. Being a kicker is beat-your-head-against-the-wall boring.
I warm up. I wait. I worry. And then, for a few seconds each week, I execute.The monotony, even more than the pressure, has been the undoing of many a kicker.
My biggest complaint is my job’s lack of creativity. In fact, thinking much at all usually results in a shanked kick, boos from the fans, and silence from my teammates.
