#35 K Chris Gough
Junior, 6'3" 165 lbs.
2012 Stats: Gough played in all 12 games, launching 67 kickoffs and landing 7 touchbacks.
Depth Chart Position: Gough is the primary backup to starter Mark Hamilton as both the placekicker and punter, though he will continue to handle kickoff duties due to having the stronger leg of the two.
How He Came To Villanova: Gough was a late addition to Villanova's 2011 signing class, and played his high school football at St. Augustine Prep. He had some FBS interest, most notably from Rutgers.
Expected Output In 2013: Hamilton will be pushing for All-CAA and All-American honors this year, so unless he picks up a knock, Gough should continue to operate solely in the kickoff specialist role, which he performed well last year. An uptick in touchbacks would be welcome, unless he's not doing that by design.
