Purdue Spring Practice: Kick Scrimmage Results

New, 13 comments

When walk-on kickers kick in 50 mph winds shananigans ensue.

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday was the kick scrimmage for Purdue at Ross-Ade Stadium, which was a weird one. First, the likely starting kicker in J.D. Dellinger, wasn't even on campus yet, as he is still in high school. Second, it was conducted in winds up to 50 miles per hour. While there was a 18 play regular scrimmage before the kick scrimmage, the scoring ended with only field goals counting and the Gold team beating the black team 24-21.

For the Gold team sophomore Tyler Duncan, a walk-on kicker from Danville, California, hit a 37 yard field goal in overtime for the win. He also hit from 28 twice, 27, 30, 36, and 39. For the black team Myles Homan, a redshirt freshman walk-on from Cincinnati, hit from 28 twice, 29 three times, and from 39. Brian Bravo, a redshirt freshman walk-on from Joliet, Illinois, hit from 32.

In the scrimmage Dan Monteroso had a 13 yard touchdown pass from Elijah Sindelar.

Because of the wind the kicking was not the best. Duncan was 8 of 16 attempts while Homan and Bravo split things for the Black team. Homan was 5 of 11 and Bravo was 2 of 4. Cole Herdman also had a 30 yard run on an installed fake punt.

There isn't a ton we can take from this, really. Between the wind and the walk-ons it made things very dicey.
