Stellar, Standard, & Subpar: Kicker Aaron Boumerhi
The players have returned to campus and we inch closer to the start of the college football season. BC Bulletin will be previewing each player and projecting out their season. In these breakdowns, we discuss what a stellar, standard, and subpar season would look like for them. We are going in numerical order, today we preview kicker Aaron Boumerhi.
Before his time in Chestnut Hill, the young kicker had two complete season with Temple. In his first year he went 15/17 on field goals, and then in 2017 went 15/23. After missing most of his final season with the Owls he was granted two years of eligibility with the Eagles after transferring. With BC he had an up and down year, finishing the year 12/18, but ending the year strong going 4/4 against Pittsburgh to clinch a bowl for Steve Addazio and the Eagles. He was very consistent on extra points as well, going 45/45 on the season.
Addazio's reign was hallmarked with struggles on special teams, could 2020 be the year that Boumerhi turns it around?
Boumerhi steps it up and becomes a reliable kicker for Jeff Hafley and his team. He kicks above 80% on field goals and is automatic on extra points. His play helps BC win a game or two. After an inconsistent 2019, he gets himself into the position to battle for a spot on an NFL team with some good range and consistency.
Kicks around 72-75% on field goals. Better than he was in 2019, but still misses some important kicks. Finishes his year on a positive note, but still has moments of being a "college kicker"
Looks to be the kicker that Steve Addazio brought in in 2019. Hits just below 70% on his kicks in 2020, and isn't as reliable of a kicker as a winning team needs.
