Remember This Guy? Former Husker Kicker Jordan Congdon Wins Starting Job At USC

With super kicker David Buehler in the NFL, it was time for USC to turn to someone new this fall to take over the kicking duties. And talk about a 'blast from the past,' that new kicker is none other than former Husker kicker Jordan Congdon. If you recall, Jordan had himself a nice little career at Nebraska before he transferred back to USC to be closer to home. Taken from

Said Congdon about his experience and about his competition with K Joe Houston,
"Hopefully it will help me in games. I'll go in there with more confidence than maybe a guy that didn't have all the reps in games. He's going to be there all season and if I'm not doing my job, I know they're not going have any problem putting him in."
Jordan was awarded a scholarship for his hard work. Can't say I won't be hoping he has a successful season with the Trojans.
