CPIFL 2014 - The Kickers

The Champions Professional Indoor Football League kicked off this past weekend. We take a quick look at this year's kickers from the league's nine teams.

Bloomington Edge - ???

Dodge City Law -  Dalton Burkhard (Dodge City C.C. / Tabor College)
"First game was a success thanks for all who supported me and the DC law until next time!!! #lawgang Kansas Koyotes - Rhylee Meck (Washburn)" - twitter

Lincoln Haymakers - Benny Hanaphy (York College / Concordia)
"Growing up in Kilkenny, Ireland, Concordia men’s soccer graduate assistant coach Benny Hanaphy lived and breathed soccer. The game is what brought him to America on scholarship at nearby York College, where he would star as an NAIA All-American. But the game of football? Now that felt foreign to Hanaphy. 'I knew very little about football,' Hanaphy said. 'I knew (the U.S.) had a Super Bowl and that there was a football (video) game called ‘Madden,’ but I couldn’t understand why they called it football when they don’t use their feet.' Yet somehow Hanaphy found himself debuting as a kicker for the Lincoln Haymakers on April 26, 2013." - Concordia Bulldogs
Oklahoma Defenders - Thomas Frevert (Northwest Missouri State)
"Off season was filled with plyometric training, sprints and cardio along with making videos...very excited about what this upcoming season has to offer as our team looks very strong! Just staying prepared and always ready to go if your number gets called for higher leagues."
Omaha Beef - Brandan Stewart (Kent State)

Salina Bombers - Corey Hoover (Missouri State)
"The Bombers held on for a 29-28 victory over the Sioux City Bandits on Saturday night in their Champions Professional Indoor Football League semifinal at the Tyson Events Center.... The Bombers took the lead for good, 29-26, on an 18-yard Corey Hoover field goal with 9:49 remaining. It was Hoover's fifth field goal of the game. 'That was an absolute blast tonight,' Hoover said in a postgame radio interview. 'I slowed down tonight and stayed patient and calm. That made all the difference'."- Salina.com
Salina Bombers - Andrew Hunt (Midland Lutheran College)

Sioux City Bandits - Nick Hope (Wayne State College)

Wichita Wild - Ernesto Lacayo (Hastings College)
Lacayo hit a pair of field goals and eight extra points in the season opener. - Kansas.com
