Meet the UND Football Kickers

Most UND football fans know all about Greg Hardin, Ross Brenneman and Jake Miller, but did you know only three players have started every game the past three seasons: captain center Ian McGurran and two others.

Most UND football fans know all about Greg Hardin, Ross Brenneman and Jake Miller, but did you know only three players have started every game the past three seasons: captain center Ian McGurran and two others.

The dynamic duo has kicked hundreds of balls for the green and white over their combined fifty games as starters. But that number doesn't begin to compare to the practice strikes they take. The first to arrive, last to leave Cameron says the punter is the hardest working player on the squad, his teammates disagree. Today before practice while I spoke with the two of them, teammates were yelling out "why are you talking to the kickers?" During practice Cameron took heat for his form on a pass reception while the receivers were openly laughing at Miller's throws. But the two players known for using their legs can also use their heads and they know their teammates are trying to put them in pressure situations in practice so they are prepared for the games. Miller is four for five this season including a fifty yarder against Portland State while Cameron was named the national punter of the week on monday by the college football performance awards. Both players told me their goal is to find a way to play professional ball in the future.
