April 8, 2014 - spring specialists overview
"It will be hard for NAU to replace All-American Andy Wilder, but the Lumberjacks must look towards the future and it starts this spring. Junior Ryan Hawkins primarily handled kickoffs for NAU this past season, so there is an open spot for punting and field goal duties. 'Our specialists will major in one thing and minor in the other,' said head coach Jerome Souers. 'We need to find a punter. Ryan has the first opportunity to fill that position, but he is primarily our placekicker/kickoff guy. He's been doing well at that and his punting has been surprisingly effective. We prefer to have two guys covering those three responsibilities, but the best guy is going to play.' The long snapper role this spring has been shared by seniors Andy Bachelier and Hayden Renning. Both players bring experience to the position, which is essential to special teams. 'The long snapping is a part of our special teams that isn't used very often, but it's the quickest way to lose a game if you don't deliver the ball back properly to the punter,' Souers said. 'I think the guys we have bring us depth and I feel really confident at that position'." - FOX Sports
