Pitt Football Fall Camp: Kicker Kevin Harper Improving

Paul Zeise checks in with his daily report in the Post-Gazette. It sounds as if kicker Kevin Harper is getting better and could be a real asset this season:

Finally, the most improved player may just be kicker Kevin Harper, who today boomed a 57-yarder and has been very consistent. Harper clearly has talent, that has never been in question, but he has struggled with consistency and he has struggled with focus. That doesn’t seem to be the case any more as the light may have turned on. And as Todd Graham said today, that’s a good thing because it means he may be able to score a lot of points in this system.

As I wrote about in a feature a few weeks back, special teams is a big concern of mine for this season. If that unit can be merely average, that would suffice in the eyes of most. But if Harper turns into a weapon and is able to kick long field goals with any modicum of consistency, then Pitt’s offense will be even more potent.
