Coach Leavitt Looking to Add Another Kicker

August 28, 2009
TAMPA -- USF head coach Jim Leavitt is holding one walk-on spot open for a place kicker on the 2009 USF football roster.

Any USF students that think they have ability or determination to play for the Bulls are asked to call the USF football office at (813) 974-7170.  All inquiries wil be sent to speical teams coach John Hendrick.

Coach Leavitt is looking to add depth at the kicking position that was depleted with the unfortunate injury to Maikon Bonani.  Currently, Delbert Alvardo is expected to handle all the punts, field goals, extra points and kickoffs.

Coach Leavitt would like to take some of the load off the established senior and develop some depth.

Last season Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach added a walk-on kicker during the season and had success.

Fortunately, the Bulls are in a better situation than Texas Tech with an established kicker in Alvarado.  The Bulls issue is depth and what to do if another injury further limited the special teams unit.
