    Competition is a welcome sight for any position, but kicker really is a place I would think you can come in and make a difference right away. Hopefully we get some consistency.

    Cool. Try him out for a year and see what he looks like. If good, give him the spot, otherwise then recruit another one next year.

    Hopefully he comes in and win the job. There isn't another position we were worse at than kicker last year. Lets not talk about some of those great kicks against KSU and KU in 2009 either.

    I like that list of guys who cost us nothing. They would have been scholarship guys under Mac. Now we get them to walk on and grab another guy with that schollie.

    With our history missing kicks, if the guy can put the ball between the posts consistently, welcome aboard

    Re: Walk on kicker from TX

    Mahoney finished the season 1 for 9.

    1 for 9.

    Could I do better? No. I also had to pay my own through school.

    Re: Walk on kicker from TX

    Does Kathy Ireland play for our soccer team?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Walk on kicker from TX

    So everyone knows.... At the Kohls competition in Dallas, he did not fair well, but that could be a blessing. At this competition he finished 34th in kickoffs and 54th in field goal accuracy. But, that means nothing really because anyone can have a bad day...big thing here is have him come in, under fire and lets see what he can do...thats exactly how diamonds are found....people relying on a bad day and not going much further into it....lets hope this is a connection to our staff knowing someone that said "Listen this kid is good, but, under the radar"...He is rated the 78th best kicking prospect by Kohls and heres a blurb on him from Kohls Kicking....

    I have seen Chris multiple times, he has a wide variety of performances that range from dominant D1 scholarship level to D2 level, his upside is solid, his kicking is ahead of his punting but he does punt well, Chris needs to stay healthy and continue to develop his consistency, has great talent.

    Obviously has the leg - but as we've seen with so many kickers - i will take accuracy from 40 in then the guy who can kick 50% from 40 out....as yaman said, a free look to see how good he can really be...i likes!!!!

    I imagine that guy the staff is listening to is Jamie Kohl...

    Coming in as a punter though? I would have to imagine he would at least work on both with the lack of depth behind Mahoney and the stability of Van Der Kamp.

    Kid definitely needs a redshirt though to work on technique.

    One area that is impressive in the videos is his ability to compensate and get the ball up in the air. The almost constant high snaps to the holder in the videos and the pressure from the rush put a lot of pressure on the kicker. He avoids problems by getting the ball up quickly which is something that some kickers never master.
