Tigers Land a Kicker

The LSU staff had been searching the countryside looking for a kicker in the 2007 class and special teams coach Bradley Dale Peveto finally found the one he was looking for. Andrew Crutchfield of Northwest Cabarrus in Concord, N.C. earned a scholarship offer from the Tigers after showing his strong leg at camp over the summer and once the official papers arrived he accepted the offer.

"I got the offer in the mail and after we talked about it I decided to go ahead and commit," said Andrew Crutchfield. "I called coach Miles and told him that I wanted to kick for LSU."


As a junior, Andrew was good on 39 of 42 PAT's and he hit 5 of 9 field goals with 85 percent of his kickoffs going for touchbacks.


Crutchfield said that his choices had come down to LSU and Arizona State but in the end the Tigers had too much to offer.


"I liked their indoor facility and their academic center was unbelievable," Crutchfield said. "Coach Peveto seemed like he really knew a lot about kicking and that he could make me a lot better so I figured it would be a good fit."


LSU now has 13 commitments for 2007.
