THE VIKING SPECIAL TEAMS

Kicker
Kicker Eric Azorr returns after making a school record 37 consecutive extra points last season.  In two seasons at PSU he had made 49 of 51 extra points giving him a .961 percentage which is good for all-time best at Portland State.

Azorr hit 7 of 13 field goals with six of his misses coming from 40 plus yards out and one being blocked.  He improved his leg strength during the off-season and worked hard on his 40 plus kicks.  Azorr's kicks have a high trajectory which make them difficult to block.

 

Punter
Azorr takes over punting duties for former Beaver Jason Daily who graduated.

 

Kick/Punt Return
Record setting punt returner Brandon Ferrigo returns after establishing school records in punt return yards in a season (311) and punt return yards in a career (509).

Shaun Bodiford and Kenneth Mackins will handle the kickoff return duties.
