Montana State Bobcats Kicker, Punter & Snapper News 2014


April 18th - Sonny Holland Scrimmage
"Saturday's action will include competition between kickers Trevor Bolton and Luke Daly. Coach Ash hopes Saturday's proceedings gives some clarity to that situation. 'The field segment is also important,' Ash said. 'We've not settled on (a kicker). It's been average at best, and I've told the kickers that they need to have a good showing on Saturday. It will be an opportunity with the crowd and something on the line to see if those guys step up.' Last week, Ash said Bolton, a junior from Great Falls and Daly, a freshman from Billings, were dead even in the field goal competition. MSU will add Helena kicker Trevin Thompson to the fold in the fall." -  Bobcat Nation

January 26th - kicker Trevin Thompson commits
"I did grow up a Griz fan, but when I was a freshman or a sophomore and I knew it would be the Griz or the Cats as the main teams that wanted me, you can’t really start favoring a school,' Thompson said. Thompson blossomed into the top kicking prospect in the state his junior year. Scholarship offers came from both schools. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound right-footed kicker took a visit to Missoula the third weekend in January and enjoyed himself. After spending the most recent weekend in Bozeman, Thompson knew the right fit for him. Thompson will be a Montana State Bobcat. He gave his verbal commitment to the MSU coaching staff on Sunday morning....  Thompson will have his tuition paid for two academic years with the promise of more scholarship aid as soon as he hits the playing field. MSU had junior Trevor Bolton, a Great Falls native who hosted Thompson on his visit, and freshman Luke Daly, a 2013 redshirt from Billings, on its current roster. Rory Perez, MSU’s place kicker the last two seasons and punter the last four, graduated.... Thompson broke seven school records his senior year for the Bengals. Thompson scored 179 points in his illustrious career and set school records for PATs in a season and a career, field goals in a game, season and career and points in a season and a career. Many of the Bengal records Thompson broke belonged to former University of Montana All-America kicker Dan Carpenter, now a six-year NFL veteran. Thompson has range out to 55 and even 60 yards, although his career long in a game is 43 yards." - Bobcat Nation
