Kickin' It (old school)
Dave McMahon -- How ready are you for your senior season to begin?
Gordon Ely-Kelso -- I am ready. I am really looking forward to it.
DM -- What do you do in practice, is it just punting, or are you involved in plays as well?
GE-K -- The beginning of practice we spend on special teams. It lasts about 20-30 minutes. After that I do my own thing.
DM -- How many punts do you think you do a day during practice?
GE-K -- Somewhere between 20 and 50. You don't want to kick too much and wear out your leg.
DM -- You were an all-state placekicker in high school, do you ever challenge Brandon Coutu or Andy Bailey in field goal kicking?
GE-K -- We play horse every now and then with field goals, but that's about it. I actually have the longest field goal of the 3 of us in practice.
DM -- How far?
GE-K -- 65 yards.
DM -- When was the last time you make a tackle in a game?
GE-K -- Not this past year, but the year before that I had a tackle vs Carnell Williams in the Auburn game.
DM -- Your net average has improved every year... what have you done differently than when you started?
GE-K -- I am more experienced now. I feel more comfortable. I feel real confident with our punt team.
DM -- The yard average is not the only thing, right? There is hang time and pinning the ball inside the 20's as well...
GE-K -- The hang time I feel is one of my strengths. I love it when I pin the ball deep into our opponent's field position because our defense is so good, something good will probably happen.
DM -- Last year you were a Ray Guy Award semi-finalist and you are nominated once again this year... did you ever see Ray Guy kick?
GE-K -- Only on film.
DM -- Since you are a big soccer fan... who is going to win the World Cup?
GE-K -- I think France. I think Brazil and France are the 2 best teams and since Brazil lost, I have to choose France.
DM -- Thank you and keep on kickin' it.
