"Kicking is more than just the fellow who boots the ball. It’s a close teamwork between three players. The center has to get the ball back just right, with the laces in the correct position. The holder must know how to catch the snap and how to place it down with the greatest speed and accuracy. Then, of course, it’s up to the kicker to get it between the uprights. There’s not much room for error anywhere along the line.”
