TA's Brandon Briggs making an impact on UMaine kicking game

Saco native Brandon Briggs making an impact on UMaine kicking game

...The former Thornton Academy of Saco kicker has supplied the Black Bears with a weapon they didn’t have a year ago when they went a league-worst 1-for-7 on field goals. They were 12-for-21 in 2015 (57.1 percent).

That forced UMaine to try to pick up first downs in third-and-long and fourth-and-long situations rather than attempt a field goal.

Briggs kicked two 37-yarders last Saturday, including the game-winner with 14:02 left in the fourth quarter, to give UMaine a 12-10 road win over Albany.

... So last fall, at the urging of a couple of his former high school teammates, he participated in an open tryout – and made the team.

Now a fifth-year senior, Briggs has become an integral part of the Black Bears. He kicked two field goals in last week’s 12-10 win at Albany, including the winning 37-yarder in the fourth quarter.

“Everything felt smooth,” said Briggs, who has two years of eligibility remaining. “It was all crystal clear. I saw it go up, the adrenaline took over and I knew I would be celebrating with my teammates.”
