Gary Stivers (1968-1969) is 5th in the Boise State record books for PAT's in a season with 46.

Eric Guthrie (1968-1971) is #7 for career points with 221, with a combination of touchdowns scored while playing quarterback and kicking points. He had 93 points in 1971. He is tied for the all-time single game record of 5 field goals, which he kicked against Northern Arizona in 1971.

Joe Larkin (1971-1972) is tied for 7th for PAT's in a season with 441.

Tom Sarette (1977-1978) was All-Big Sky in 1978.

Kenrick Camerud (1979-1981) is tied for 3rd for career PAT's with 98, tied for 6th for career points among kickers with 188 and also 6th for career field goals with 30. Camerud is tied for 7th for PAT's in a season with 41. Until the recent offensive juggernaut that is the Boise State offense these days, that figure was 3rd on the all-time list.

Mark Jensen (1982), a Borah High product, is tied for 2nd in the Bronco record books for his 54-yard field goal against Nevada. He hit 17 field that year, 4th all time for the most field goals in a season.

Tony Massagli (1983) is tied for 5th for field goals in a season with 16.

Roberto Moran (1985-1986) is 5th all-time for career field goals with 34. He's also 3rd on the Bronco list for field goals in a season (18), which he accomplished in 1986. Roberto's 1985 season in which he scored 16 field goals is also good for a tie for 5th in that department. The strong-legged Moran has the two longest field goals in Bronco history, a 56-yarder against UC-Davis in 1985 and a 54-yarder vs. Nevada in 1986. In fact, Roberto booted 5 over 50 yards in his two years at Boise State—no other kicker has more than 2. Moran is tied for the single-game field goal record with 5, a record set in 1985 against Idaho State. He also is 2nd for most consecutive PAT's with 53.

P.K. Wiggins (1986-1987) 4th with 89 points in 1987. Included in that total are 16 field goals, which put P.K. tied for 5th for field goals in a season. Wiggins is also tied for 7th for PAT's in a season with 41. P.K. hit 45 straight PAT's in 1986 & '87, the 5th longest streak in Bronco history.

Mike Black (1988-1991) is the all-time record holder for career field goals with 51 and #3 for PAT's with 122. He is also the #3 kicker for career points with 275. Black was All-Big Sky in 1991. He went on to play for several different teams in the Arena League, most recently with the New England Sea Wolves.

Mike Dodd (1991-1992) is 2nd only to Tyler Jones for most field goals in a season (22), achieved in 1992. Dodd was not only an All-Big Sky pick in 1992 but a 1st team Kodak All-American in I-AA as well and a 3rd team All-America selection in 1991.

Greg Erickson (1993-1995) is #4 for career field goals with 37, tied for 4th for career PAT's with 98 and #5 for career points among kickers with 211. He is also #5 among kickers for points scored in a season with 85 points. Greg is 4th for the most consecutive PAT's with 52.

He had the #2 and #3 and #6 seasons among kickers for points with 104 set in 2000 and 96 scored in 2002 and 83 points in 1999. Calaycay kicked four field goals three different times in his career, more than any Bronco in history. Nick is #1 all-time in PAT's with 213. He has 4 of the 7 greatest seasons in Boise State history for kicking PAT's; he kicked 63 in 2002, 59 in 2000, 50 in 2001 and 41 in 1999. Five times Nick kicked over 8 PAT's in a game, an achievement not matched by any other kicker until Tyler Jones did it twice last year to wind up with five as well. Calaycay was named to the All-Big West team in both 1999 and 2000.

Tyler Jones (2001-2004) has the top two seasons for scoring among kickers with 141 points last year and 132 in 2003—Brock Forsey holds the all-time record with 32 touchdowns for 192 points. For his career, Tyler scored 294 points, 3rd to Forsey's 408 and 348 for Nick Calaycay. Tyler also wound up 2nd in career field goals with 46 as he broke the all-time record for most field goals in a season last year with 24. He is also 3rd on that all-time list with 19, scored in 2003. Tyler's last two seasons rank 1-2 in terms of PAT's with 75, which he scored in the 2003 season, and 69 last year. His 156 points after touchdown for his Bronco career rank him 2nd. He holds the all-time Bronco record for PAT's in a game with 10, achieved in 2003 against San Jose State. Tyler set the all-time consecutive PAT record over the 2003 and 2004 seasons with 72 in a row. Jones kicked 2 field goals over 50 yards in his career, 1 against Tulsa in 2003 and the other against Hawai'i the previous year. Tyler was named All-WAC and was a 2nd team All-American in recognition for his outstanding senior season. He signed a free agent contract with the Chicago Bears and is now with the Cleveland Browns.
