Last October, Basil discussed the origins of his kicking career:
"When [my older brother] Kyle was going into his freshman year of high school, he was going to kick for the football team. They had team camp at Thomas More College in Kentucky. I tagged along. [Former Bengals kicker] Doug Pelfrey was there to teach them how to kick. I watched and learned and kept kicking and kicking and kicking. I was going into fifth grade at that point.... I didn’t know I wanted to kick in college until the summer going into my freshman year of high school."
