Diving In

The only pure kicker in the Professional Football Hall of Fame is Jan Stenerud, a native Norwegian who came to Montanta State on a ski jumping scholarship.

So, the future should be wide open for Jeff Wolfert - the Missouri Tigers diver-turned-kicker. According to an article in the Belville News:

The sophomore from Overland Park, Kan., who came to Missouri in 2004 on a diving scholarship, has become the Tigers' most quietly consistent source of points this year. After beating out senior Adam Crossett, Wolfert has made 17-of-19 field goals this season and all 40 of his extra point attempts.

Seems like a natural transition to me...
