What a great attitude and asset to the team. I've never heard of a kicker giving so much props and respect to his kicking unit. Kid's a football player.

Props to the coaching staff for giving this kid a look when they had every reason not to.

Andy not only is a nails kicker, but he is a great and classy person to boot. Perfect fit for this Ute team. And to think he is only a Freshman!!

Go Utes!! Keep it up Prince Phillips!!

Kickers that experience success like this are viewed as very valuable (and they are). But if and when they struggle and a game is lost by a a few points, then their metal is tested moving forward. That said, I hope Andy continues his unbelievable play. What a story he is.

Love the PAC-12 membership! So much to follow each week. And so many games impact both the Utes and the PAC-12. ie.
To date the PAC-12 has won some 85% of its out of conference games. (Thanks to the Utah teams that have contributed.) What this means is that the PAC-12 projects as many as 10 teams could be bowl eligible at the end of the season (6 wins). If this were to happen as projected Utah (even at its 75% sharing factor) could get close to $3M* from just the bowl games. So go Utes! First get bowl eligible and then win as many as possible to play in a higher profile bowl.
* This is my calculation based on projected bowl payouts, equal sharing among PAc-12 teams (Utah getting 75% of full share) and Oregon playing in the BCS bowl game. Make it happen!

Keep it up Automatic Andy!

Hard to believe BYU had first shot at this kid and turned a deaf ear. He's been lights out. Wish he was a Coug!
