#6 Brandon Klimek
Redshirt Senior
5-11 | 184
Manhattan, Kan.


Position: Kicker

Previous College: None

Projection: Second-String

Status: Walk-On

Brandon Klimek (b. Oct. 21, 1989) has kicked as many field goals (one) in a real game at the college level as he did in high school, strangely enough.

He will be our second-string kicker, but don't expect to see him unless Anthony Cantele suffers an unfortunate injury.

Klimek did not attempt a kick in 2010 or 2011, but he converted a 46-yarder against Texas A&M in 2009. He also knocked in two extra points against Tennessee Tech that season. He attempted just one kickoff in the spring game.

In the 2011 spring game, Klimek connected from 45 and 46 yards, but strangely, he missed from 30. Perhaps his erratic tendencies are due partly to his inexperience. He only hit one field goal in high school, after all.
