Louisiana College Wildcats Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

June 2, 2015 - kicker Jhesus Vargas signs
"Although he loves soccer more than football, Jhesus Vargas saw a chance to play at the next level in football, where he enjoyed considerable success as one of the best long-range kickers in Northwest Louisiana. He nailed a 57-yard field goal in one game last fall, much to the surprise of Rebels coach Chuck Dupree. 'I was told he could do it, but I didn’t believe it,' Dupree said. 'I figured even if he didn’t hit it, it would be as good as a punt anyway. Then, it went right through.' Vargas said he had an offer from Northwestern State to walk-on, but he and Dupree stopped in Pineville on the way back from the All-Star game." - Shreveport Times

October 24, 2014 - kicker Adan Olivares
"Gilmer graduate Adan Olivares, Louisiana College’s senior kicker, is now the proud owner of two school records ... not to mention the American Southwest Conference’s Special Teams Player of the Week honor. In his career, he has kicked 149 extra points, which passed the former record held by John Michiels. He scored six points in a 45-24 loss to Mary Hardin-Baylor (three extra points, one field goal), which also gives him a school record 241 total points." - Longview News-Journal
