November 9, 2014 - punter Scott Groner
"The road to the Missouri Western special teams was anything but conventional for Scott Groner. 'No organized football. I'd mess around at school and play Australian rules football, which is just kicking the ball to each other pretty much,' he said. Groner grew up wielding a bat and glove rather than a helmet, adopting baseball as his childhood sport.... Groner hopped on with the football team in 2011 and worked alongside current Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein. Despite the initial learning curve of the American game, he made strides and led the MIAA with a 42.6 yards per kick average in 2013, good for 11th in the nation. He garnered a Preseason All-American nod this summer." - St. Joe Channel
