Pilates -- That is what Chargers punter Mike Scifres attributes to his amazing kicking abilities. He also credits weightlifting for his incredible leg strength.
In 2009, he had only two touchbacks and landed 23 of his 52 punts in the 20-yard line.
Scifre is the franchise's all-time leader with 44.2 yards per punt. He is averaging 44.5 yards through three games this season.
On a side note, Scifres is an excellent golfer and plays with a 15 handicap.
