Consistency in Coaching: Nick Folk & Kai Forbath

Consistency is the application of something necessary, for the sake of accuracy or achievement, at a level of performance that does not vary greatly in quality. Ask any athlete about one of the most influential aspects of their career and chances are the answer will be directly related to consistency in coaching. This is a point I and other topanking coaches feel strongly about. As an alumnus, and the kicking and punting coach at Notre Dame High school for the past 10 years, it has been my consistency in coaching that has attributed to the success of my current and former players.

Two of my former players, who I had the privilege of coaching during high school, exemplify how natural ability and the importance of the consistency model led to them playing in the NFL.
Nick Folk and Kai Forbath. Both started with me as freshman at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, CA. I was able to help Nick Folk receive a scholarship to Arizona, where he went on to play in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys and currently is a kicker for the New York Jets. Kai Forbath, accepted a scholarship to UCLA and now has a career with the Washington Redskins. Today, both of my former players give back by working on the Chris Sailer Kicking Staff.
Folk and Forbath exemplify two great success stories and model the importance of consistency in coaching. Remember “consistency breads excellence”.
