Kicking through the up-rights, Ryan Burkhart shows his strength. So where has this leg been? I’ll tell you. It’s always been there; it was more of an accuracy issue that kept him on the sidelines, clean as a whistle. So what about our special teams? This is where I’m going to stop you. Did you read what I just wrote? Notre Dame has a kicker who can kick it out of the end zone. Notre Dame has a kicker who can kick it out of the end zone. Is he from Hawaii and is his name Reggie? Nope, his name is Ryan and he’s ready to pummel some leather on kick-offs. So what’s all of this mean and why is it important? Well, our defense won’t be defending on average, fifty-six yards after kick return. Forty-four yards were automatically given up after kick returns because of our inability to put the ball in the end zone. We just got better. Thank you Mr. Walker. With Brandon Walker pushing and jelling with Ryan, he now has corrected his slice and centering the ball down in the end zone on a consistent basis. The importance of competition. Cheers to not watching Penn St. receivers bringing it to the house. What other surprises will there be? Stay tuned, everyday is a different headline.
