Yay, we got a kicker!
That dude's pretty built. He could almost be a linebacker. I think he'll get in on a handful of tackles on kick-offs.
He may find himself in the slot occasionally.
Seems like he kicks it really high. That is good as it decreases the chances of the kick getting blocked
I don't know how much Barwis can do for kickers. Either our current kicker (Gingell?) has a wet noodle leg comparable to Sheridan's wet noodle arm, or RR is emphasizing hang time more than distance on kickoffs. I can only recall 2 or 3 times we've kicked into the endzone this year, with the majority of kicks landing around the 10 and returned to the 30.
I'm pretty confident that having a "strong leg" is not, literally, having a strong leg. It's more technique than muscle.
we have a thing with big kickers...garret rivas was fat as hell...and kc lopata is a big ass too
I don't care how fat they are as long as they put it through the uprights. They can be 5'4'' 330 pounds but if they can make a 45 yard field goal consistently I will take them.
he played punter, kicker, linebacker, and D-End
Sounds like my role on my 6th grade team: kicker, punter, kick returner, punt returner, guard, DE. Must have been a reaaaaaally thin high school team.
