Biography

Goldmine

  • While working as a glazier, a glass installation specialist, in his native Australia, Wishnowsky’s friends began showing him NFL games. After a couple years, he decided to leave his job and move to Melbourne to join ProKick Australia, a training academy for aspiring punters. Founded by Nathan Chapman, an Australian who once had an opportunity with the Packers, the academy has had massive success, with about 50 punters on Division I scholarships. Though the technique required for punting is a learning process, Wishnowsky thinks he and his fellow Australians have the ability to excel thanks to the sports he played growing up, like Australian rules football, track, and soccer. “While Americans grow up wanting to throw the ball, we grow up trying to kick 60-yard goals,” he said. “Sure, the techniques are slightly different, but the swing of your leg is pretty much the same. We have that muscle memory drilled into us from a young age.”
