The Dragons have brought in former LSU Kicker Cole Tracy to fill the void left by Greg Joseph. Joseph was originally selected in the XFL Draft, but signed with the Titans before his Dragons contract was finalized.
Cole Tracy should have no problem filling in here. At LSU in 2018, he was 29/33 on Field Goals and made 100% of his extra points. Before he made it to the big stage, he turned heads in D-II ball at Assumption College in Massachusetts. There he made 80.9% of his field goals and is one of only two kickers in college history to have 2 games with 6+ made field goals.
He won the Fred Mitchell Award, which is given to the nation’s top kicker outside of FBS Division I ball. The selection committee includes Hall of Famers HB/K Paul Hourning, Coach Mark Levy and RB Gale Sayers, so impressing them was no small feat.
Coming out of college, NFL Analyst Lance Zierlein said that
“The move from D-II Assumption to Death Valley might have been too much for some, but Tracy fit right in and was even carried off the field in the LSU’s win over Auburn.”
He’s a solid clutch placekicker for the Dragons to pick up, and while he didn’t handle kickoff duties at LSU, he has some experience there at Assumption College and should be just fine. Great pickup for the Dragons heading into training camp.
