Ep. 13: Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings Kicker

BoS-Logo-iTunes

When talking to Minnesota Vikings Kicker Blair Walsh you get the sense of a man that is focused on what’s ahead. He’s moved past last season, and is primed for a big season for a Vikings team with high expectations. In other words, he’s got the right mindset to play what can sometimes be a very unforgiving position. Most of that is because he knows what’s important, which is a testament to his strong family and support system. Blair, statistically, is a top-5 Kicker in the National Football League since he debuted in 2012. At age 22, he was named 1st Team All-Pro in the NFL (the only rookie on the team that year) and set numerous Viking and NFL records along the way. In 2015, he made almost 97% of the Extra Points he attempted and almost 86% of the Field Goals he attempted. Continue reading “Ep. 13: Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings Kicker”

In fact, when people ask me my thoughts on high school recruits that doesn’t involve quarterback play I usually refer them here. But something important happened this last signing day that isn’t getting the proper attention (or reaction) it deserves.
