Tidbit Tuesday: Wildcat's Style

The Arizona Wildcats are coming off one of the biggest victories in school history.  They beat the Oregon Ducks 31-24.  The victory catapulted the Wildcats all the way to number 10 in the college football rankings.  It was the biggest jump ever of any college team.  There was something else interesting in Thursday nights game.

The Arizona place kicker has an interesting story to be told.  Casey Skowron is a red shirt junior, but didn't even come to U of A to play football.  He started out as the manager of the girls soccer team before started kicking field goals for the Wildcats.  Skowron graduated from Phoenix's Brophy Prep High School.  He was a soccer player and only played football at the end of his senior year in high school.  He only joined the team after he was pursued because the football team didn't have a kicker.  He decided to give it a try and now he is the field goal kicker for the 10th best team in the nation.
