Well here is one way to get your coach’s attention.
While most players are content to slug it out in practice and rise to the top through rigorous efforts, one Arkansas kicker is taking a more unconventional approach.
This week, an attendant working for the parking authority on the University of Arkansas campus noticed a QR Code taped to the sign on Bret Bielema’s parking spot. He decided to give it a scan and was redirected to the highlight reel of walk-on kicker Samson Tamijani.
Tamijani was the starting kicker at William & Mary and was among the top scoring kickers in the country while he was there. Now, he’s making a pitch to help Arkansas solve its kicking woes.
The Razorbacks have grown frustrated with their current kicker Cole Hedlund, who missed to easy field goals in a 28-7 loss to TCU on Saturday. While those points wouldn’t have been the deciding factor between winning and losing, it kept the Razorbacks reeling and fighting uphill the entire game.
Tamijani won’t be able to play this season, as he is ineligible because of NCAA transfer rules. It appears that he is trying to plant the seeds early in the mind of Coach Bielema.
