Football the freestyle way
Around the Academy:

Craig Dobson shows off his freestyle moves

I'm Craig Dobson and I'm a former Nike Freestyle champ and I play for Barnet.

I appeared in an MTV music video after winning the Nike competition.

Check out the tricks

I started doing tricks when I was about 11. There was a time when I couldn't even do 10 keepy-ups!

But my Dad wouldn't let me in until I could do 20 and soon I was able to do 100.

It was then that I got bored of just doing keepy-ups and started to do tricks.

It gives you so much confidence. Your first touch becomes better and you feel more confident with the ball in a game.

Whether I'm in the car or going to the bus stop I have always got a football with me so I can practice!
