Looks at punter position

Recently it was stated the esks are looking for a punter. I posted on Winnipeg’s website as well about Chris Hicks from Samford. I have also heard that Edmonton is interested in the kid as well. I talked to Chris yesterday and he stated that he has worked out for both teams and had fair workouts with both. He didn’t know where he stood with either team the BB’s or the Esks. I was just wondering what you guys thought. Here are some of his stats.

2003-True Freshman
Came in mid way through the season it says on their web site.
25 punts for a 42.0 yard average. 1 touchback and 11 inside the twenty.

2004- Sophomore
63 punts for a 42.1 yard average. 5 touchbacks and 26 inside the twenty.

Named special teams player of the year 2006,2004,2003

saw this kis play a few times...cannon of a leg


If the nfl doesnt take him first, it will be interesting to see where hicks goes. hes got a great leg and i'm sure edmonton and winnipeg are both willing to put up a fight for him...and i cant blame them. his average cant even describe what kind of a punter he is. youve got to see him play. he kills it everytime. a sure bet for a punter you can count on game after game.
