Fall camp starts for Missouri on August 5th. There are plenty of storylines to follow. But PowerMizzou.com has identified ten players whose performances will be key to Missouri's success during the 2010 season. Today, we begin our countdown with No. 10 on the list.
Starting our list is punter Matt Grabner. Grabner enters his second season with the Tigers, but his first as a projected starter. Last year, he had one punt of 38 yards, which landed inside the 20-yard line against Illinois.
Why he's on the list: Last season, Grabner backed up Jake Harry. Harry had the Tigers atop the Big 12 statistical rankings in net punting a season ago (thanks in large part to Mizzou allowing less than one yard per punt return). He averaged 42.8 yards on 61 punts and had only two touchbacks all season long. Punters often go unnoticed until they make an error, but Harry was solid for Missouri a season ago.
Nobody covers the Tigers year-round like PowerMizzou.com. Over the next 30 days, we will preview every angle of the 2010 football season. If you are not yet a member, just try out our free seven-day trial.
