|SMU: Morstead making an impact in N.O. by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
All SMU football fans will remember Thomas Morstead, the Mustangs' kicker for three years and one of the truly great guys on the teams of past seasons. The New Orleans Saints traded up to get Morstead in the fifth round of last spring's NFL draft, and the move is paying off. The rookie punter is now handling kickoffs as well and is tied for the NFL lead with nine touchbacks on kickoffs.
Strange - he never kicked off at SMU or in high school, and started doing it on a whim for the Saints in the final preseason game. The New Orleans newspaper wrote a great update feature on him Wednesday that SMU fans will enjoy reading.
