Cole Murphy just wanted to play football.
But when he decided to join his high school team, his parents gave him only one option.
“You can play, but you can only be kicker,” he said.
For Murphy, the decision to kick has been a good one. The true freshman at Syracuse has been almost flawless since taking over for Ryan Norton earlier in the season. He’s 12-14 on field goals, including a 50-yarder in back-to-back games.
