Name: Colton Lichtenberg
Hometown: Savannah, Georgia
High School: Savannah Country Day
2016 Stats: Lichtenberg played in only the first game last year against Georgia Tech in Dublin before he left with a quad injury. In that game he recorded two PATs and missed two kicks (granted one was blocked). He was replaced by a resurgent Mike Knoll in the following weeks, who never gave up the starting job and remains in the driver’s seat this year.
Projections: Lichtenberg has struggled since he arrived at Boston College, going 3 for 6 his freshman year, and it is hard to see him winning the job this year. But as I have said before, nothing is out of the question with BC’s kicking corps and it is just as likely as not at this point that Lichtenberg kicks.
How’d He Get Here: According to Kohl’s Kicking, Lichtenberg was the 10th ranked kicker in the 2015 class. He’s always had a strong leg, which you can see below.
