Junior David Lonie has attempted only one field goal missing a 50-yard boot against New Mexico State. The Australian born player is confident and possesses a strong leg. The coaches expect him to develop into one of the better kickers in the conference.
Lonie also handles punting duties booting five kicks for a 44.0 average. Three of his five kicks have landed inside the twenty-yard line.
Sophomore Tim Mixon manages punt return duties where he has returned five kicks for a respectable 13.4 average. Mixon is small, but explosive as his 43-yard jaunt against Air Force showed.
Junior Terrell Williams and freshman Marshawn Lynch lineup to field the kickoffs, but the two have had limited work. Lynch has yet to return a kick, while Williams has just two returns for a 21.0 average. Both have playmaking ability and are dangerous to return each kick for a large gain or a touchdown.
