PUNTER-IN-WAITING Scott Crough has thrown his name in front of NFL selectors.With the four-and-a-half month lockout over a labour dispute finally over, the former Bungaree footballer has spent the past week showcasing his skills at three different clubs.New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns all showed interest in Crough's services, but are yet to offer him a contract.Crough said the NFL experience had been a "rollercoaster", but believed it would hold him in good stead for the future."I've had three workouts in five days and was happy with how I kicked, but it's just a lack of experience at this time of the year. With pre-season getting started next week that has gone against me, but the good news is I am on standby if a team cuts someone," he told The Courier from the United States yesterday."I am feeling really good and ready to go."Crough, who won the Central Highlands league best and fairest in 2001, said he was due home to Queensland in a couple of weeks, but would remain on call should he be required."I will wait it out and see what happens, then go home, keep training and stay ready to go because anything could happen during the season," Crough, who played a couple of years with East Point in the Ballarat Football League, said. "Generally if someone is not performing in the training camps, (NFL clubs) will explore other options so that's why you have to be ready to go."The other day I finished my workout with the Packers and literally was on a plane headed for Cleveland within two hours."I also got good reviews of my workouts, so if an injury occurs at those clubs then they know what I can produce."Meanwhile, Crough's Prokick Australia training partner, former Carlton and Collingwood player Chris Bryan, has secured his third NFL contract. Bryan, 29, has been offered the place as the New York Jets' starting punter.
