8) Named #1 punting prospect in the country by punting expert Chris Sailer
9) 2 time Florida state champion shot put
10) Won Florida state championship in discus throw as a junior
11) Due to his accomplishments on the field in football and track was named as a finalist for Max Preps National Athlete of the year.

That was Matt Darr. I would have offered him a scholarship. He has only averaged about 38.5 yds per punt at U.T. Maybe he will get back in the groove. His ball drop looks bad to me , and he doesn't get the nose of the football up. I believe that he has the leg, but his mechanics and confidence need work. He may yet blossom like Palardy did as a senior.

As far as Palardy proving early on that he could punt, he averaged 39.3 as a freshman, and 36.8 as a junior. It took him until the 3rd year. Darr hasn't been in that many games yet.
Yes I would have offered Darr.

People here look for any reason to blame Dooley. The man is no longer here so let it go. Stop blaming Dooley when one of the football players rips a fart that don`t stink.
