Colorado Football - Cole Becker is a Buff

The reliable K makes it official

NCAA Football: UCLA at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

James Stefanou is a legend. The oldest player in college football finally had to hang up his cleats after too many injuries. Stefanou, when healthy, was automatic. Unfortunately, there’s a hole in the special teams now, and Evan Price is doing a great job. However, when you can flip Cole Becker, YOU FLIP COLE BECKER.

I know absolutely nothing about evaluating kicking, but hey, kickers deserve their time in the sun. Becker is a five-star rated by Kohl’s Kicking Camp. He was committed to Iowa State, but when Boulder comes calling, you answer the call. he will play all four years in college after coming in from California.

Good kicking can make a college team go from okay to good or good to great. Robert Aguayo was one of the best weapons for Florida State, Rodrigo Blankenship at Georgia almost made it to the national championship. A good kicking game is important to keep the wheels turning. Cole Becker will be a weapon.

Welcome, Cole!
