Consistency in the kicking game has eluded USF the last few years, and as a result there’s been a revolving door of players having kick off and place kicking duties for the green and gold. With Will Fowler and fellow commit John Cannon, the Bulls should be set for both responsibilities and show depth at a key position on the football field.
Fowler performed both kick off duties for Spartanburg and constantly placed the ball deep in the end zone, with strong hang times averaging at least 4 seconds, giving his coverage team plenty of time. In a covid-shortened season, Fowler hit 27 touchbacks on 38 kick offs. He also went three-for-three on extra points his senior year.
