THE VIKING SPECIAL TEAMS
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.
Azorr takes over punting duties for former Beaver Jason Daily who graduated.
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.
