And you can start with place-kicker Aaron Hunt.
Hunt returns for his junior year after ending a sophomore campaign that saw him drill 10-of-12 field goals, and 44-of-45 extra points. In fact, his only missed field goal in the last seven games of the season occurred when he hit a 35-yarder wide right against Florida State.
While Aaron Hunt's accuracy has improved over the course of the last two seasons, (Hunt finished his freshman year hitting 10-of-16 field goals) he also has demonstrated some added power this off-season. Hunt drilled a 52-yard field goal with plenty of room to spare in the Orange and White game this past April, and his kickoffs have been routinely sailing into the end zone.
Add a 25-yard game winning field goal to his resume back in the 2000 South Carolina game, and you have the makings of a potential All-ACC performer this year. Hunt has been tested in this two-year career, and for the most part, he's passed with flying colors.
Punter Wynn Kopp on the other hand, still has some work to do. The Georgia transfer, who is most noted for his outstanding hang-time on his punts, didn't perform up to par last season, and he'll likely have his hands full with freshman Cole Chason this August.
"He's a veteran and needs to be more productive," said Bowden of Kopp. "He had a very average year last season and he'll need to improve this fall." Kopp was the starting punter for every game last season but only managed to put up a an average of 38.5 yards per kick.
Even more important is the fact that Kopp seemingly let the team down last season with several short kicks under pressure- most notably in the closing minutes of the Virginia game. The Cavaliers took advantage of a short punt and drove 44 yards in only six plays to score the winning touchdown with only one second remaining on the clock.
Consequently, incoming freshman Cole Chason will likely battle it out with Kopp in early August for the right to be the starting punter.
Chason was an all-state place-kicker in Georgia last season as well as an all-region punter. He hit on 6-9 field goals with a long of 52 yards and was 58-62 on extra points his senior season. As a punter, he recorded an average of 45.6 yards, and he also had 39 touchbacks on 75 kickoffs.
"My ultimate goal is to win both the punting and kicking jobs." said Chason. "I will first get a shot at punting and kickoffs. If I do not get it, I will red-shirt."
While Hunt appears to be locked in at place-kicker, look for Chason to give Kopp all he can handle this fall.
