Nevada Wolf Pack 2013 Specialists

Our summer tour of FBS schools looks at the specialists for the Nevada Wolf Pack.

Kicker: Colin Ditsworth, junior (Las Vegas, NV / Bishop Gorman HS)
Takes over the starting role following the graduation of Allen Hardison.
2012: hit 1 of 3 three field goals, made 8 of 8 extra points, and served as kickoff specialist.
Silver and Blue Game: hit field goals of 48 and 40 yards.
Punter: Chase Tenpenny, senior (Oskaloosa, KS / Fort Scott CC)
Named to Preseason All-Mountain West teams by both Athlon Sports and Phil Steele.

Returning starter who last year averaged 43.3 yards on 46 punts, with a long of 63 yards, and placed 12 inside the 20 yard line.
Kicker/punter: Brenton Zuzo, freshman (Canton, MI / Plymouth HS)
“We stated earlier in February that we were holding on to one scholarship in case we found a player after the signing date that we thought could help us. We have found that player in Brent Zuzo.  Brent was an All-State selection in the state of Michigan and considered one of the top specialists in the country by some of the most trusted kicking instructors in the country.  His addition will create good competition for the kicker and punter spots heading into the fall.  We are very excited to add him to what we believe is a fantastic recruiting class.” - head coach Brian Polian
Long snapper: Tyler Wilson, freshman (Sparks, NV / Spanish Spring HS)
“I’ve been coming out here almost my whole life. Coming out on this field is no big deal for me and I didn’t think it was going to be. I’m used to it. I’ve practiced long snapping here growing up with my dad [assistant coach Ken Wilson]."
High school: two-year letter winner for the Cougars in football ... Also lettered one season in golf
Long snapper: Cody Block, freshman (Phoenix, AZ / Mountain Ridge HS)
"During my high school life I have rigorously trained five nights a week lifting and longsnapping with my personal coach on top of all high school football practices, camps, weight-lifting, meetings, etc. I have fully committed myself to becoming a D1 prospect longsnapper."
