The University of Louisville football team has a lot of weapons coming back this season.
But one spot where there's a lot to replace is on special teams. Kicker Jon Wallace and punter Josh Appleby both graduated and there have been battles for both positions in fall camp.
U of L coach Bobby Petrino said on Friday the battles "are continuing" for both positions.
Anthony George has a leg up for the kickoff position.
There is plenty of talent to choose from for kick and punt returners, with Traveon Samuel and Jaire Alexander both expected to continue to handle kick and punt returns respectively. Samuel handled the majority of the kickoff returns last season, averaging 26.8 yards a return. Alexander handled the punt returns for most of the year, averaging 9.7 yards per attempt.
Colin Holba will once again serve as the long snapper.
Here's a video from Cardinal Authority previewing the position battle:
