Hofrichter’s strong leg traveled both inside and outside during his career for the Syracuse Orange. He registered 72 punts of 50 yards or more. The AP third-team All-American allowed just 17 yards on 10 punt returns in 2019. Over the course of his stay in school, he improved as a directional punter.
DraftNasty sat down with former Miami (Fla.) placekicker/punter/kickoff specialist Matt Bosher over nine years ago to talk about his plan for attacking the NFL. At the time, the three-time All-ACC kicker was still figuring out what NFL position he would play full-time.
It turns out he has become a pretty good punter/kickoff specialist for the Atlanta Falcons. He has a career 55-percent touchback percentage on kickoffs and has averaged nearly 46 yards (45.7) per punt. Bosher has ranked in the Top Five for punting average five times in his nine-year career. In the process, he has posted an impressive 28 tackles, which was something he discussed in our sit down with the former Hurricane.
First-year Louisville Cardinals (8-5) head coach Scott Satterfield led the team to a 38-28 victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the 2019 Franklin American Music City Bowl. Despite moving on prior to last year’s New Orleans Bowl as head coach of the Appalachian State Mountaineers, Satterfield has now led teams to four consecutive bowl victories. Led by redshirt sophomore signal-caller Micale Cunningham’s Music City Bowl MVP performance (350 total yards, 2 TDs), the Cardinals amassed over 500 yards (510) of total offense.
Micale Cunningham QB Louisville
Louisville's Micale Cunningham rushed for 81 yards on 16 carries as he consistently kept linebackers like Mississippi State's Tim Washington (No. 41 pictured) in constant pursuit. In addition, Cunningham threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns. The sophomore phenom finished 2019 with 22 touchdown passes and five interceptions.

Scott Satterfield continues to win bowl games at a frenetic pace. The Music City Bowl victory marked his fourth bowl game in the last four games he's coached in (didn't coach in the 2018 New Orleans Bowl for Appalachian State). His continued rise has coincided with a Louisville program that could be headed on the way back up the ladder in the ACC.
Clemson sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence accounted for 366 total yards and three touchdowns in leading the Tigers back from a 16-point deficit to defeat the Ohio State Buckeyes 29-23 in the 2019 Playstation Fiesta Bowl. The game MVP got a lot of assistance from ACC Offensive Player of the Year Travis Etienne, who chipped in with 150 all-purpose yards and three scores in the comeback effort.
Silver Bluff High School head football coach De’Angelo Bryant stresses fun, competition, excitement, instruction, leadership and fundamentals in his youth football camps. His second annual camp featured intense campers being led by detailed coaching. DraftNasty went behind the scenes to take an in-depth snapshot.
Silver Bluff High School hosted its second annual Gridiron Golf tournament at the Midland Valley Golf Club in Graniteville, South Carolina on June 28, 2019. Here is a look at some of the images from the weekend.
A very rough and enraged style of play would describe the disposition of former Oklahoma OL Cody Ford. Ford recovered nicely from early career injury issues to earn first-team All-Big 12 honors in 2018. We take a look at his approach in our video spotlight. Some may contend that he was the most dominant player on Oklahoma’s offense in 2018.
The 2018 Big Ten’s Defensive Player of the Year was a consensus All-American a year after being named a first-team All-Big Ten selection. He was named a back-to-back Academic All-Big Ten performer. We spotlighted the fact that his leadership within the program was verified when he became just the second non-senior to be elected captain during the Jim Harbaugh-era. His father, Devin, Sr., was a first-round draft pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 1995 NFL Draft after starring at Florida State.
2017 Outland Trophy Award winner Ed Oliver tallied five quarterback sacks and 22 tackles for loss during his sophomore campaign. While his junior year didn’t quite match up, we did spotlight his disruptive nature early in September of 2018. For his career, he totaled 53 tackles for loss in a largely dominant three-year stretch. DraftNasty Magazine goes inside the game of the 2017 AAC Defensive Player of the Year.
Former Southern Miss defensive back Tarvarius Moore went from an unheralded first-year starter to third round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2018 NFL Draft (95th overall). His combination of speed (4.3, 40-yd) and movement ability could eventually land him a spot as a cover safety in the team’s schemes. It wouldn’t be out of the question for them to even give him time at the cornerback spot. We go deep inside his game in our video spotlight on the former Golden Eagle.
