Dave Anctil - 4DU Strength & Performance Director of Kansas & Missouri

Strength & Performance Director of Kansas & Missouri

My name is Devin Anctil and I’m a specialist coach in the Kansas & Missouri areas.  I grew up in Lenexa, KS and attended Olathe Northwest High School. I’ve been a punter/kicker since I was 10 years old and have 15 years of experience playing special teams.

My senior year in high school I decided to set a goal of being a kicker/punter for a division 1 College.  Even though I started my recruitment late, especially in today’s recruiting world, I was blessed to receive an offer to play for one of the more formidable junior college football programs in KS, Coffeyville Community College.  During my freshman season I accumulated every kicking and punting award for my JUCO Conference.

After 1 year of hard work and dedication at Coffeyville Community College, I attended the Kansas State summer kicking camp where Sean Snyder invited me on the spot to pack up and come play for the Wildcats! I had no idea at that time what a life changing opportunity this would be. The three years under Bill Snyder and 1 year playing for Chris Klieman were some of the best years of my life! I built relationships, fulfilled my dream of punting at a Division 1 university, and was coached under the legendary special teams coach, Sean Snyder.

I ended my career at Kansas State as an All-Big 12 Punter two years in a row, Ray Guy of the year quarterfinalist, and the Mortell Holder of the Year quarterfinalist.  In addition, I broke two Kansas State 25+ year-old punting records: season average and career average.

Currently, I’m living and training in Lenexa, KS, and in pursuit of yet another dream, punting at the next level in the NFL, CFL, USFL, or other professional football league. I started and am collaborating with 4th Down University because I have a passion for my craft and want to be helpful to those who also may share similar dreams to mine.

My vision is to help kickers, punters and snappers who have dreams of playing at the collegiate level.  I’m available to train specialists and consult with high school/college programs to help them become better at their craft.  I bring an NFL mindset and as a specialist coach and strive to bring the most out of athletes to help them succeed on and off the field.  In order to maximize an athlete’s potential, we will address film, supplementary training and weight room routines, off-season mental preparation, pressure situations, specific drills and scenarios, competition, and life.
