Dickinson State Blue Hawks Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 28, 2014 - Josh Borm
Dickinson State senior Josh Borm has found success not just at one position, but three. The Cheyenne, Wyo., native sees all aspects of the field for the Blue Hawks. He’s primarily the team’s punter and kicker, but also sees ample time at wide receiver. 'I’ve always been playing wherever it’s been needed, whether it’s quarterback or whatever. But I hope I kind of found a spot here at receiver,' Borm said with a smile. 'Starting to figure things out kicking and punting too, which is kind of nice.' Borm played receiver early in his football career and also saw some time defensively at free safety. Before coming to DSU in the spring of 2013, Borm played football for Chadron State (Neb.) and started to turn heads with his punting. As a freshman, he averaged 39.7 yards per punt and 61.6 yards on his kickoffs.... In 2013, among a lost DSU season as the team finished 1-10, Borm had one of his best and most consistent punting performances in the NAIA and was rightly recognized. He ranked sixth in the NAIA in punt yards per attempt, averaging 44 yards, and punted the ball 76 times on the season. As the Blue Hawks’ kicker, Borm made 18 of 20 field-goal attempts with his longest coming at 38 yards." - The Dickinson Press

Franklin Grizzlies Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 25, 2014 - summer specialists
"Senior Jake David (Evansville, Ind./F.J. Reitz) returns to handle the long- and short-snapping duties. He has been a vital member of Franklin teams that have captured three HCAC championships and won a NCAA Division III first-round playoff victory each of the last three seasons. 'Football is a team game that takes a complete effort to post a win,' said Head Football Coach Mike Leonard, who enters his 12th season leading the Grizzlies. 'We may have graduated an All-American punter and all-conference kicker, but there are guys eager to come in to make their own mark to help us continue our winning tradition.' Leonard added: 'We are fortunate to have Jake returning as our special teams' snapper. Successful punts and placekicks start with an accurate and quick snap. Jake does those things very well.' Preseason practice has had senior Max Larreur (Fishers, Ind./Fishers), the team's kickoff specialist in 2013, and junior Cody Beeks (Wabash, Ind./Wabash) battling for placekicking responsibilities. Both players have strong and accurate legs. Beeks served as the team's backup punter for graduated All-American Michael Parks last fall. The junior entered preseason practices as the starting punter. Freshman Stephen Colligan (Fort Wayne, Ind./Fort Wayne Dwenger) adds depth to the punting and placekicking duties." - Grizzlies

West Chester Golden Rams Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 25, 2014 - summer specialists
"The biggest loss to the special teams will be place-kicker Shawn Leo. He was one of the school's all-time leading scorers and broke nearly every kicking record in the record book during his four-year stint on South Campus. That means Rich Bruno will have to double up and take on place-kicking duties in addition to his punting job. Bruno averaged 39.5 yards per punt a year ago, landing 15 boots inside the opponent's 20-yard line and booming seven kicks over 50 yards. He has the punting game locked down. 'He has a strong leg, and he is coming off an outstanding spring,' Zwaan assured. 'This will be the first time that he handles extra points and field goals, but he will be fine. He doesn't have the consistency that Shawn had, though.' Zwaan said that with Bruno handling both punts and place-kicking procedures, the staff will look for a freshman to fill in on kickoffs. Bruno has done that in the past as well, and he has done it expertly. Along those lines, Zwaan and his staff will also be searching for a holder in the preseason. Red-shirt freshman Tony McGuane is the only other kicker on the roster returning to the Golden Rams. Three true freshman dot the roster as kicker/punters. McGuane did not appear in a game last fall. The last key to the kicking game is the long snapper where junior Chuck Kuklinski returns. He has been West Chester's long snapper for the last two years, and Zwaan thinks that continuity and consistency, along with the relationship he has with Bruno, is vital to the Golden Rams' success in that area." - Golden Rams

Wagner Seahawks Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 25, 2014 - punter A.J. Firestone named team captain
"The strong-legged, 6-1, 210-pound Firestone was named First-Team All-NEC in 2013 and is a 2014 Preseason All-NEC selection. Last season, he averaged 41.0 yards on 28 punts, with a long of 52, three punts over 50 yards, four touchbacks, five fair catches, five downed inside the 20-yard line while earning a spot on the 2013 NEC Fall All-Academic Roll. A highlight of his 2013 campaign came in the season finale when he played a key role in Wagner's season-ending 10-7 win at Saint Francis U (11/16), punting seven times for a 45.2-yard and twice pinning Saint Francis U inside its own 20." - Seahawks

July 1, 2014 - long snapper Phil Faccone
"Senior long-snapper Phil Faccone (Brick, NJ/Brick Memorial) has been named to The Sports Network Preseason All-American Second-Team....  'Number one, Phil has a great work ethic and it's that work ethic that has led to his consistency," said Wagner head coach Walt Hameline. 'He has a great mindset for the position. He's calm, level-headed and he works at it'.... 'When he arrived three years ago, you would not have thought he was a Division I athlete but he really worked himself into being a top long-snapper and contributor to our program,' special teams coach Ryan Fullen added. 'He's lost weight, he's put the time in, and he works at his craft. I'm thrilled that his efforts continue to be recognized because Phil works his tail off and cares a ton'. Faccone's combination of scholarly work in the classroom and community-minded spirit, have allowed him to be nominated to the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®. One of the sport's premier service honors, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® shines a spotlight on the positive, off-the-field impact that a select group of student-athletes has on their communities." - Seahawks

March 28, 2014 - spring specialists
"Wagner feels good about this unit as the Seahawks return fifth-year senior and First-Team All-NEC punter A.J. Firestone (Mercersburg, PA/Penn State) and strong-legged senior kicker Bryan Maley (Eagle River, Alaska/Chugiak). Maley grabbed headlines in 2013 when he stepped in for the injured David Lopez and booted the game-winning kick at eventual NEC Champion Sacred Heart (10/5) en route to earning NEC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. For the year, Maley was 3-of-4 on field goal attempts and a perfect 7-of-7 on PATs. Wagner also returns consistent and dependable senior Phil Faccone (Brick, NJ/Brick Township) at long-snapper. In 2013, Faccone was named Third-Team All-American by The Sports Network." - Eagles

Jackson State Tigers Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 25, 2014 - kicker Chris Jacquemin competing
"Freshman kicker Chris Jacquemin has shown he can play — early. The Tigers have looked at all three (including sophomore Darcy Williamson and junior Ryan Deising) equally, from punting to place kicking. Last season, Williamson handled the punting duties and Deising the place kicking. Jacquemin showed he can do both. The lefty puts a good air in his kicks. His punts and kickoffs have a good hangtime, and he has range that shows promise in long field goal attempts." - Clarion-Ledger

July 16, 2014 - punter Darcy Williamson
"Jackson State's Darcy Williamson has earned a spot on the 2014 CFPA Punter Award Watch List, as announced by College Football Performance Awards.... Last season Williamson emerged as one of the top punters in the Southwestern Athletic Conference. He finished the 2013 season ranked third in the SWAC in punting with 2,094 yards on 50 punts for a 41.9 average. He also recorded a JSU record when he booted an 81 yard punt against Alabama State." - Tigers

South Carolina State Bulldogs Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 23, 2014 - freshman specialists
"For nine months, there was a glaring omission from the South Carolina State football roster. The graduations of Nick Belcher and Will Roper left the Bulldogs without a single active placekicker or punter available. Through spring practice and even voluntary workouts, the uprights at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium served as an end zone prop with little usage for kick attempts. With the arrival of freshmen Tyler Scandrett as placekicker and York High School quarterback Jerome Pettiway handling the punting duties, S.C. State is now a complete team again heading into the Aug. 30 season-opener against Benedict College at the Palmetto Capital City Classic at Charlie W. Johnson Stadium in Columbia. The influx of youth is both promising and somewhat anxious for South Carolina State head football coach Buddy Pough. 'We’ve got a lot of guys on that special teams game that scare you a little bit, but they’re pretty good,' he said. 'The good thing is they’ve got dern good ability. The bad thing about them is they’ve got no experience and we talk about going younger because we’re possibly going to try to see if we can make our punter our holder. If we can get that done, then that make us even younger. That makes us a whole freshman crowd. They’ll be lots of times when I’ll probably be standing there watching the PATs with my eyes closed.” -  The Times and Democrat

August 2, 2014 - new specialist arrives
"Head coach Buddy Pough, said, during the fall practices that he is relieved to finally have a kicker in place, after going through spring drills without a kicker or a punter on the roster. The best part about having Tyler Scandrett (Fr.-5-9/170-Punter/Kicker) here is that he is a freshman so that gives us time to work with him, according to the Bulldog mentor." - Bulldogs

February 5, 2014 - kicker/punter Tyler Scandrett signs
"Lamar County HS, Barnesville, GA - 2013 All-State selection... Made 23 of 28 field goals for his career... Averaged 34.9 yards per punt... Recorded 38 career touchbacks on kickoffs." - Bulldogs

Nicholls State Colonels Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 22, 2014 - summer specialists
"With new kickers and holders, the field-goal kicking struggled during spring practice and in the first fall scrimmage. But in the final scrimmage, the field-goal kicking dramatically improved. The Colonels were 5-for-5 in field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points.... Making field goals of 30 and 39 yards in the scrimmage was recent arrival Francisco Condado, signed before fall camp after playing two seasons at Cerritos (Calif.) College.... Condado (5-foot-10, 170 pound, Jr.) isn't the only new place-kicker on the roster, as Nicholls has David McKay (5-9, 165, Soph.) and Tyler St. Germain (6-2, 175, Fresh.) on the team. Also veteran punter Connor Fryoux (5-10, 180, Sr.) can kick field goals, while St. Germain is listed as Fryoux's backup at punter. The most experience player in the place-kicking operation is long snapper Ty Boudreaux (5-9, 185, Sr.). Boudreaux said he and new holder Landry Klann have been working diligently on their timing to give the kickers a chance to make every attempt." - Houma Today

April 20, 2014 - coach Charlie Stubbs discusses special teams
"We don’t do a lot of work on special teams in the spring, but I feel really good about our kickoff situation. Ryan Domangue did a great job of kicking deep into the endzone and he has a powerful leg. Conner Fryoux came on towards the end with his punting, so I feel like he improved in that area. And Ty Boudreaux has always been consistent as our long snapper. Our returners did a very good job fielding kicks, and it will be interesting to see how that competition heats up once we bring in our new guys in the fall. Our biggest concern is our field goal kicking. We gave all of our young men a chance, and we’re not giving up on them, but we will bring in another kicker to compete for that job." - SportsNOLA

Texas Southern Tigers Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

March 31, 2014 - spring specialists
"The Tigers now have two experienced kickers who both have experienced some success. 'Corey [Carter] and [Eric] Medina are back with us and we brought in another long snapper,' head coach Darrell Asberry said. 'We put some pressure on Medina as a true freshman and he did well despite some freshman tendencies.  Corey went through the same thing as a true freshman and he came back and led the conference in punting his sophomore year.  We feel real good about those guys'." - Tigers

February 5, 2014 - long snapper Terry Smith signs
"Port Gibson, MS (Copiah Lincoln JC) - Smith fills an important void with the Tigers' special teams.  As a long snapper, he has a quick release and he is extremely accurate." - Tigers

Savannah State Tigers Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 18, 2014 - second summer scrimmage
"Kicker John Barron had a successful day as he nailed a 43-yard field goal attempt and converted four points after touchdowns. His first attempt for a PAT was mishandled on the snap, the only snafu of the day. Another impressive display of kicking came from junior punter Jacob Thomas. He launched multiple high-hanging punts at various times, which at some point of the season could give the Tigers some great field position in upcoming games. Most of the kicks traveled over 40 yards." - Tigers

April 21, 2014 - spring game
"Kickers Preston McCarthy and John Barron also showed some impressive place kicking skills. Barron, sophomore from Marietta, GA, was 2-of-4 on field goal attempts, with a 47-yard kick and a 52-yarder, while senior kicker, McCarthy went 1-of-1 with a 32-yard kick." - The Tiger's Roar

Johnson C. Smith Golden Bulls Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 16, 2014 - punter Matias Lambrecht
As a freshman in 2013, Lambrecht averaged 43 yards per punt, which ranked second in the CIAA and seventh in all of NCAA Division II. 'He was a godsend for us,' said Golden Bulls coach Steven Aycock. That might seem like hyperbole coming from a coach talking about a punter. But Aycock understands the value of having one as talented as Lambrecht, a native of Argentina who didn’t even punt much in high school. 'He flips the field for us quite a bit,' said Aycock, whose team opens the season Sept. 6 at Charlotte. 'This year he’s going to be a heck of a lot better with his angle punting and how he can really pin teams back for us'.” - Charlotte Observer

USA Today 2014 Preseason All-American Kickers & Punters

The USA Today announced its annual Preseason All-American Team yesterday. The key members (i.e. the kickers and the punters) for 2014 are as follows:

First Team

Kicker: Roberto Aguayo, Florida State (sophomore)
No. 1 Florida State led all schools with seven players named to the USA TODAY Sports’ preseason All-America college football first and second teams released on Thursday. Aguayo had one of the greatest seasons ever by a kicker in college football history in 2013, setting the single-season record for points by a kicker (157) en route to the Lou Groza Award and several first-team All-America accolades.
Punter: Mike Sadler, Michigan State (senior)
It will help that Sadler is past a series of injuries that have hampered him in recent years. He said Monday that he's feeling “as good as I’ve been since I’ve been here” after undergoing offseason knee surgery and missing all of spring camp. 'I’m excited for this year to start,' Sadler said. A strong, healthy season could help Sadler earn an NFL career -- something he admits is in the back of his mind. But knowing that won’t stop him from fully taking in his senior year. "It’s been a great time but at the same time it’s kind of been a blur," Sadler said.

Second Team

Kicker: Marshall Morgan, Georgia (junior)
“He’s hitting the ball really good,” coach Mark Richt said. “I like the way he’s hitting the ball. The ball gets up, his leg is strong, he’s doing a nice job.” That’s a continuation of how Morgan did as a sophomore last season. He led all SEC kickers in scoring (10.3 ppg) and field goals made (22) and was 22-of-24 overall while making all 47 of his PAT attempts.
Punter: Drew Kaser, Texas A&M (junior)
2013 first-team All-American by The Sporting News and Sports Illustrated. Also a finalist for the Ray Guy Award. 2013 first-team All-SEC. Broke perennial NFL All-Pro Shane Lechler’s school record with 47.4 average. Had 17 “coffin corner” boots and 17 punts of 50 yards or more.

Sports Illustrated 2014 Preseason All-American Kickers & Punters

Sports Illustrated announced its annual Preseason All-American Team yesterday. The key members (i.e. the kickers and the punters) for 2014 are as follows:

First Team

Kicker: Roberto Aguayo, Florida State
Enters his second season as college football’s top kicker looking to join former Seminole Sebastion Janikowski (1999, 2000) as the only repeat winners of the Lou Groza Award, given to the nation’s top kicker. Has an explosive leg with impressive power and great accuracy as evidenced by only missing one field goal and no extra points in his first season. Gives FSU another weapon on offense as he is automatic on PATs and has field goal range that extends well past 50 yards. Versatile athlete with the ability to boom kickoffs for touchbacks or pin returners inside the 20.
Punter: Drew Kaser, Texas A&M
Kaser, from Strongsville, Ohio, was a first-team All-America pick and a finalist for the Ray Guy Award in his first season as a starter in 2013 after averaging 47.4 yards per punt. Kaser led the SEC in punt average and broke Shane Lechler’s long-standing A&M record of 47.1 average from 1999. Kaser’s amazing season included 17 50-yard plus boots, 17 “coffin corner” efforts, 14 fair catches and a long punt of 76 yards on 44 total tries.
Second Team

Kicker: Andy Phillips, Southern Utah
Phillips was a surprise bright spot for the U. last fall, going 17-for-20 on field goals and making all 41 extra point attempts. He was perfect on his first 11 attempts, gaining the moniker "Automatic Andy" from some fans. He's a candidate for the Lou Groza award, and has been on several preseason All-Pac-12 teams.
Punter: Mike Sadler, Michigan State
Fifth-year senior enters his fourth season as Michigan State's starting punter in 2014... preseason first-team All-America selection by Athlon Sports... preseason All-Big Ten selection by Athlon Sports (first team), Phil Steele (second team) and Lindy's (second team)... named to watch lists for the Ray Guy Award (nation's top punter) and College Football Performance Awards Punter Trophy... three-year letterwinner has a career average of 42.4 yards per punt, which is currently sixth best in MSU history

Monday, August 11, 2014

Stetson Hatters Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

May 2, 2014 - kicker Jordan Acham signs
Lake Worth, FL - Was a three-year letter winner for coach Rodney Harris at Palm Beach Central HS ... Handled punts, kickoff and placement kicks ... Also lettered in soccer, wrestling and track ... Averaged 40 yards per punt as a junior and senior ... Received a 4.5 star rating by Khol's Kicking ... Set a school record with a 90 yard punt ...

Adams State Grizzlies Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

August 4, 2014 - Twin kickers Garrett and C.J. Visser
"Twin brothers Garrett and C.J. Visser are as identical in their love of soccer as they are in their appearance. Both brothers currently attend Adams State University in Alamosa, where they are entering their junior seasons with the Grizzlies men's soccer team. But while they are soccer players at their cores, both Garret and C.J. Visser find themselves in a position that may lead them to have a greater impact on another team. Garrett and C.J. Visser could be more important to Grizzlies athletics as placekickers on the football team. 'Obviously, soccer is our favorite sport and we're really new to football,' C.J. Visser said. 'It's hard to pick and would be great if it works out where we could play both. It would be a great experience to play two college sports and if both teams can use us, we'd love to play.' Following an injury to the team's kicker midway through last season, Grizzlies football coach Marty Heaton walked into soccer coach Tim Busen's office in desperate need of a strong leg or two that could help get the Grizzlies through the season. Of the 10 players Busen sent Heaton's way, the Visser twins emerged as the best kickers." - Broomfield Enterprise

Fred Mitchell Award 2014 Watch List, part 3

The annual Fred Mitchell Outstanding Place-Kicker Award announced its preseason watch list. The Award’s Selection Committee Chairman Chris Kearney said, “These place-kickers are impressive on the football field and off the field representing their schools, their football teams, their conferences, their communities, their families and themselves. We look forward to following their accomplishments during the next few months. Of the 36 kickers, 21 led their team in scoring last season and 12 finished second on their team in scoring so there is a lot of scoring power returning this season.” The Watch List includes place-kickers from more than 750 eligible colleges. Fred Mitchell said, “It is a pleasure to include these fine young men on the Watch List for this Award, which is celebrating its sixth year in 2014. We are delighted to recognize them based on outstanding performance in the community and expectations going into the 2014 college football season. It is also a thrill to see so many familiar names on the Watch List, including 13 nominees and two place-kickers that were among the top ten for the Award last season.”
