Return specialists back for BC special teams
Kicker Brandon Cupples graduated in May ranked #4 on the BC career kick scoring list and leaves big shoes to fill. Leading the candidates to replace him is junior Adam Burgess, who booted 18 of 22 PATs in 1999 as a freshman while Cupples was injured.
Jovan Johnson and Jamie Stevens were both kickoff return leaders for BC last season, combining for 357 yards between them. Johnson also took over the punt return duties late in the season, with seven returns for 16 yards.
