About Brendan Cahill

Over The Line is written by me, Brendan Cahill.

For the past decade I was a teacher having taught overseas as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine, first grade in Brooklyn, New York, and then high school history in both inner city New Haven, CT and the posh suburbs of the New York City Area.

During this time, I also developed a coaching and consulting business where, as a former college kicker, I got to learn from NFL Super Bowl and Pro Bowl kickers, punters and snappers while helping high school kickers and punters better navigate their college recruiting process.

I’m putting these eclectic experiences as a teacher, coach and consultant for the past decade to work to deliver a newsletter that is worth your time and attention.
