Friedgen's biggest concern: kicker
This came as a little bit of a surprise to me. When I asked Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen what his biggest positional concern is at this point, he said point after/field goals. Earlier in camp, Friedgen alluded to some struggles by sophomore Nick Ferrara, who made 18 of 25 field goal attempts last season.
During this training camp, he has gotten too many blocked and his technique may be off.
“Still struggling,” Friedgen said. “We just have to keep working on it. We are not kicking the ball too well right now.”
Friedgen talked to him but said Ferrara has so many people talking to him now that he just needs to focus.
“It’s almost like a golf swing,” Friedgen said. “You just have to hit it the same way all the time.”
Punter Travis Baltz, who has punted as well in camp as he has at any point in his career, is getting some work at place kicker.
