This week we salute Northern Colorado backup Punter Mitch Cozad. Bet you didn't even know Northern Colorado had a backup punter did you?
Cozad stabbed starting Northern Colorado punter, Rafael Mendoza in his kicking leg in a parking lot. Many players will whine to coaches that they'll do "anything it takes" to be the starter, but the minute coach suggests stabbing a teammate they'll back off. Rarely do you see players this proactive about moving up the depth charts.
Cozad is facing second-degree assault charges for now, but you better believe Colorado State will need a punter after this lawsuit boils over, and who's number do you think they have front and center in their rolodex?
It's called planning ahead. Look into it.
