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
From King Louie to Prince PhillipsPass the Crown.
The guy is totally impressive. Wish he were a Cougar!
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!!
It's like a made for Disney movie.
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!
