10 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Anthony Cantele

He kicks off, he boots clutch field goals, he scores two-point conversions touchdowns and he tackles kickoff returners. Is there anything Anthony Cantele can't do?

Goal No. 10: NEVER GIVE UP. Never, never, never.

Bio

Position: Kicker

Previous College: Missouri State University

Projection: Starter

Status: On Scholarship

Anthony Mark Cantele (b. Jan. 15, 1990), everyone's favorite two-point converting touchdown-running kicker, returns in 2012 for a final season of booting the laces.

Some take kickers for granted, but not Bill Snyder. Cantele will be important to us.

Cantele's stiffest competition will come from Manhattan product Brandon Klimek, who knocked a few in during the 2011 spring game, but Cantele ought to be able to hold him off. Klimek did not attempt a kick in 2011, after all.

Cantele's younger brother, Jack, and scholarship kicker Dillon Wilson both are coming off redshirts, but neither is ready yet to unseat one of the better, more clutch kickers in K-State history.

So, the only question left is: Will Cantele be able to top his individual heroics in the 2010 Missouri State game (which ironically happened against his former school, where he played soccer for a year)?

And will he ever have a kick more important than his clutch 44-yard field goal with 2:12 remaining in the fourth quarter against Texas A&M to force overtime — a kick so dramatic it was featured in a "16 Goals" countdown video?
