Florida Atlantic Owls Kicker, Punter & Snapper News


June 12, 2014 - punter Sean Kelly departs
"FAU confirmed to the South Florida Sun Sentinel‘s Dieter Kurtenbach that Sean Kelly has decided to leave the FAU football program.  Other than “personal,” no reasons for the departure were given. Kelly’s 42.7 yards per punt ranked third in Conference USA and tied for 36th nationally.  He was the everyday punter his first season with the Owls, averaging 39.9 ypp. Following the 2013 season, he selected second-team All-Conference by the head coaches in the league." - NBC

May 24, 2014 - spring specialists
"Freshman Landon Scheer, a scholarship recruit, will replace Mitch Anderson at kicker. It's unclear whether FAU will also use Scheer as the kickoff specialist; another option would be junior punter Sean Kelly, who had a solid 2013 season." - USA Today

February 5, 2014 - kicker Landon Scheer signs
"Charlie Partridge, whose history of being a strong recruiter in South Florida was one of the reasons he was hired, also expressed excitement about highly regarded kicker Landon Scheer, who was rated the No. 1 kicker in the country by 247sports.com. Scheer competed in four sports at Orlando’s The First Academy, adding track, soccer and weightlifting to his football participation. 'When we got here,' Partridge said, 'we realized we needed a kicker, so we started to call every known kicking specialist from around the country, and his name kept coming to the top. As we evaluated the top four or five kickers available he was the one we put our focus on and we got our No. 1 target'.” - Palm Beach Post
