August 30, 2014 - Dylan Mulder kicks winning margin over Morgan State
"Facing formidable winds and a 42-yard distance between his foot and the goal posts , Mulder was brought in for a field goal attempt with 13:41 left in the contest .  The junior kicker rose to the occasion and sailed the ball through the uprights to give the Eagles the advantage once more, 31-28." - Eagles

June 1, 2014 - returning specialists
"After a solid 2012, the Eagles needed kicker Dylan Mulder to build on his success in 2013. After making of 10 of 11 the previous season, Mulder hit just 6 of 11 last year, not what a struggling offense needs. Punter Austin Barnes wasn’t bad as a freshman. He had a gross just under 40 yards, but only had 11 returned. Of course, those 11 returns averaged 21.9 per attempt, higher than some teams kick returns." - Saturday Blitz
