Coach Husby and Coach Jackson, co-owners of National Kicking Rankings, are excited to announce that Coach Ed Groth of Power Kicking has joined NKR and will provide a strong Northeast presence in developing and evaluating specialists.
"He's a young guy with enthusiasm and passion," Husby said. "He also teaches proper fundamentals that we agree with and is in the kicking business for the right reason. We are happy he has joined NKR."

"Ed obviously showed he can perform at high level and was consistent during his four years as a starter at CCSU," Jackson stated. "We have inquiries all the time about running a camp or training up in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, and now, we have that as a resource through great coaching in Ed. Stoked to see the Northeast develop in NKR and am eager to see Coach Ed do his thing."
His senior year, he had a long of 43 yards, and averaged 40 yards per punt. He was named All-NEC and All-New England. Currently, Ed is still pursuing a professional career. He had try-outs in the AFL and mostly recently a try out with the Seattle Dragons of the XFL.
