The 2007 football season is still next year but it's never too early to talk Vanderbilt football on VandyMania. Today we continue our quick position-by-position look at the 2007 football squad and look at the special teams. Sure, position changes and roster moves are bound to happen but lets have some fun taking a look ahead.
Sophomore Brett Upson returns as punter.
He had a 37.4 yard average per punt in 2006. Bryant Hahnfeldt, who was the punter in
2005, should be the backup.
Bryant Hahnfeldt returns. He had 52
kickoffs in 2006.
PLACEKICKER- Bryant Hahnfeldt was 8 of 17 on field goals in
2006. His longest field goal was
from 51 yards. Hahnfeldt made
27 of 29 extra point attempts.
Upson will return as the backup.
Mackenzi Adams served as the holder in 2006 and will likely do so in
PUNT RETURNER- Alex Washington, who returned 10 punts for 5.6 yard
average per return in 2006, returns. So does Earl Bennett, who returned 8 for a
4.1 yard average.
KICK RETURNER- Alex Washington and Josh Allen both return; each
averaged about 19 yards per return. Sean Walker saw duty late in the season with
good results and could take over this job.
