Herrington only Mountain West player on preseason special teams watch list

Training camp for Air Force football begins in a little over a month, and one of the few certainties the Falcons have going into camp is their kicker.

There will be new starters at almost every position group, but Parker Herrington returns after a fantastic year at kicker for Air Force. He surprisingly won the job in fall and never looked back. Herrington was included on the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA)  2012 Special Teams Watch List – the only Mountain West player on that list. Herrington was one of 33 placekickers on the list.

With so much else to worry about in August, the Air Force coaches certainly are happy they won’t have to spend much time fretting about who will kick this season.
