Florida puts out call for new walk-on kicker on Twitter
Florida is looking to bolster its special teams ranks by bringing on a new kicker to back up Austin Hardin and Jorge Powell, and the team is turning to Twitter to get the word out.
In what sounds like the plot of a feel-good sports film, the Gators' recruiting Twitter handle let all eligible students know that the team is looking to add another big leg for the remainder of the season.

Hardin missed three consecutive games for Florida this season with a leg injury before returning for Saturday’s 35–28 loss to LSU after his replacement, Powell, was injured on a kickoff.
