Dream Team Kicker Kevin Muma Joins Spartans

Associate Editor

In a move GSN anticipated, MSU has added a kicker to the Spartan family. Kevin Muma told GSN late last night he has committed to the Michigan State football team.

A few weeks ago, GSN looked at a number of kicking prospects the Michigan State coaching staff had an eye on with two senior kickers leaving the team — Todd Boleski, the kickoff specialist, and Matt Haughey.

Kevin Muma was one of those players, and he is now a Spartan. Muma contacted GSN late last night to confirm the news and inform us that he has accepted a full scholarchip to play under head coach Mark Dantonio.

The 6-foot, 175-pounder was rock solid for the Colts. As a junior he connected on field goals of 49, 42, 41, 37, 36, 35, 34, 33, 32, 32, 27 and 21-yards as he went 12-of-19 for 63%, but as a senior he improved his consistency, making twelve of fifteen attempts with a long of 52-yards He also averaged 35-yards per punt.

He attributes much of his success to his soccer background, a sport he has played since he was a kindergartener. He was named to the Detroit Free Press Dream Team.
