Mike Frisina - West Coast Kicking Academy Hall Of Fame

Boise State University
Saddleback Junior College
Brea Olinda High School

Mike Frisina came to us as a 13 year old 8th grader, not playing organized football.  His goal was to get good enough to make his Freshman football team as an undersized, but passionate and coordinated athlete.

His ability to process the technical aspects of kicking and apply them on a consistent basis was evident early on.  Always a fierce competitor, he enjoyed the challenge of kicking with and against the "bigger" kickers like Joe Robles, Andrew Aguila and Mike Bowlin.

His work on technigue was heralded at any college camp or combine he attended.  Regularly, he was singled out about "how it should look" when kicking a football.  

Mike's greatest asset was understanding who he was.... Mr. Consistent.  He knew that if his technique was good enough and he kicked the ball straight enough, coaches would not be able to overlook his talent.  Small on size (5'5"), but big on heart and maturity, Frisina not only made his Varsity team as Sophomore, but became the team MVP while also playing QB his Senior season as well.  As he matured, distance became less of a issue, connecting on a 53 yard FG as a Junior and was selected to play in the North/South All-Star Game before attending Saddleback College.

At Saddleback, he demonstrated his maturity while splitting kicking duties with Bowlin, becoming a Scholar Athlete as a Freshman and Sophomore, becoming All-Conference twice and braking several records.  Good enough to earn himself a spot at Boise State.

Boise State had struggled for a few years with the consistency of their placekickers.  Mike's maturity came into play once more.  He stayed consistent and, over time, earned the starting job.  His best moment came in his final football game, the MAACO bowl vs the University of Washington.  With the Broncos trailing by 1 and the clock running out, Frisina calmly knocked through the game winner and was carried of the field by his teammates.

Mike has been coaching for WCKA since he was 18.  Currently he is on staff at WCKA, motivating and helping the next generation of kickers to reach their goals on and off the field.

Frisina Advice 

When you're kicking in a game, trust your technique, breathe deeply, kick with confidence, and remember to aim small, miss small.
