In this ten-part series, we look at the starters and key players for each position. Starting today, we cover the special teams guys with kickers and punters.
Last Season: John Wallace was 15-of-21 last season, but missed two crucial late game field goals that would have tied the game against Houston and Clemson. He had a season-long of 50 yards and came close to hitting a 61-yard field goal against Auburn in the season opener. Wallace would sign an undrafted free agent deal with the Washington Redskins after completing his eligibility last season.
Josh Appleby received praise as a false Heisman hopeful and fan favorite, while averaging roughly 41 yards per punt and landing 28-of-69 inside the 20-yard line.
Everyone seems to have an opinion on the Bobby Petrino hire. You won’t find many people who have nothing to say about it. They either like it or they don’t. Well I reached out to some of his former players from Louisville, mainly some guys that I personally knew from the team who I may have had class with at UofL. There are still a few more I am hoping to hear back from, but here is what I got so far.
All this week, we will be bringing you exclusive write-ups from former UofL football players about the rivalry with UK. We have asked them just their general thoughts about the rivalry, and some mention their best and worst memories. We hope you enjoy these! Go Cards!
Kicking it off this week: Art Carmody!
