        With Matt Gay graduating, will Chayden be our guy? Or will we try and bring in another kicker to compete?

        I think I heard someone say he was making 70 yarders pregame

        I’ve always felt a little bit bad for Johnston. The guy misses one single kick (a difficult 40+ yarder, if I recall), Gay gets the next opportunity, and the rest is history.

        Yes. Our kicking game should continue to be in good hands for years to come.

        He was the starter prior to Gay so that should tell you something. I dont think the coaches feel they need to run out and find a new kicker.

        Does Johnston have one more year or two?

          two, maybe three. I am not sure what his RS status is.

            He will be a RS sophomore next year.

        This is what competing for a starting position can do for pushing players for max performance.  Some players thrive on that competition, while others just transfer and look for an easier path.

        The amazing thing is I remember attending several spring scrimmages then and I remember thinking that our kickers absolutely sucked. I think Gay was one of them – can’t remember exactly. I can’t remember if Chayden was one of them (was he on a mission? – can’t remember.) Amazing the progress Gay has made.
