We're going back-to-back with special teamers on the 100 Days countdown, as today's featured player is number 95, Tyler Davis. The redshirt junior kicker wrestled the kicking job from Joey Julius in 2015, and did not disappoint. In seven games, Davis made every kick, hitting 8 field goals and 11 extra points without a miss. He hit his season long kick of 42 yards in the win over Illinois.
Davis is going to be facing more competition in 2016. Julius returns, and will certainly be trying to correct some of his issues that cost him the job last season. Freshman Alex Barbir arrives on campus as the most popular kicking recruit in Happy Valley possibly ever in the wake of Quinn Nordin's de-commitment. Many fans expect Barbir to grab the job immediately, but Davis will do what he can to not make that easy.
Only 95 days until Penn State football.
