2009 Countdown: #66 Brendan Gibbons

2009 Countdown: #66 Brendan Gibbons

July 31, 2009

Name: Brendan Gibbons
Height: 6’0″
Weight: 229 lbs.
High School: Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, FL
Position: Kicker
Class: Freshman
Jersey Number: #34
Prediction for 2009: Kicker

Gibbons is a true freshman with a ghetto booty (see photo above). Garrett Rivas was a bit chunky, and he turned out to be pretty good, so hopefully that bodes well for Gibbons, who is 229 lbs*. I put the three potential kickers (Gibbons, Olesnavage, and Wright) together in the list because none of them has proven himself or separated himself from the others, so an injury to one might not cause much of a dropoff.

On a side note, if Gibbons wins the kicking job, Michigan will have a left-footed kicker and punter. I just blew your mind.

    Michigan has had a lefty kicker and punter the past two years as well.

    Gingell doesn't count.

    I think the much more fun fact is that in the 2007 PSU game, all four kicking specialists were lefties.
