Western State Colorado Mountaineers Kicker, Punter & Snapper News


April 23, 2015 - spring specialists
"Western led all of NCAA Division II in net punting, averaging 39.92 yards.  Dakota Swinehart (Sr., Taos, N.M.) was the primary punter last season, averaging 43.68 yards per punt, and returns for his final season.  Swinehart was an all-conference honorable mention selection last season.  At the place kicker position, Ryan Winke (Jr., Aurora, Colorado) will be back after being an All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) First Team selection in 2014.  Winke was second in Division II with 1.73 made field goals per game.  'Dakota and Winke have been vital to our success,' Bains said. 'We are really having them focus on fundamentals this spring.'  Emerging as Western's primary long snapper this spring has been junior Jacob Leggett (Jr., Colorado Springs, Colorado).  Leggett will look to solidify his position this fall and be the primary snapper to Swinehart and Winke." - Mountaineers
