Specialists

Total on scholarship: 3

First-teamers: PK Chris Francis (6-0, 182, Sr.) or Brayden Narveson (6-0, 195, Fr.), P Cory Dunn (6-1, 203, So.), LS Steve Wirtel (6-4, 227, Jr.).

Second-teamers: P Joe Rivera (6-2, 188, So.)

In the pipeline: There’s no need for reinforcements yet, considering the youthfulness at the position.

Position-group takeaway: So-so.

Pete’s analysis: Here’s how this likely breaks down — Dunn is a proven punter, Francis again handles the kickoffs and Narveson will be the place-kicker. Narveson is one of the guys that’s a cinch to play as a true freshmen.
