97 Days: Adam Erickson

Erickson's pre- Red and Black days at Clarke Central.

There are 97 days until kickoff in Atlanta, or just one day less than 14 weeks. Today's spot on the countdown is highlighted by local freshman kicking sensation, No. 97, Adam Erickson. Erickson is an undecided major from Athens marred in the thick of the kicking competition behind incumbent starter Blair Walsh and surfer turned cowboy turned Power Ranger, Brandon Bogotay.

Seriously, have you seen Bogotay's episode? Check out youtube (he's the stunt double for the Blue Ranger in the episode)...

Yeah, wild isn't it? It was actually him who threw up the "Peace" sign in the intro- typical Cali surfer-dude... He'll never admit it, but the scissor kick practice sessions really helped to give him his field goal stroke.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand.

I don't know that much about Adam, but I'm sure he's a great kid who wanted to stay at home and play for the good guys. Keep plugging away kiddo, they keep giving scholarships to kickers, so your job ain't getting any easier.

G.A.T.A Adam!

Next up: No. 96 Mike Thornton
