New, 6 comments

Today we come to the traditional unlucky number of 13 and we shine our spotlight on former WVU kicker/punter Mike Vanderjagt.

Vanderjagt had a strange collegiate career, to say the least. He started out as a quarterback for Michigan St. in 1988 until he transferred to Allan Hancock Community College and became a place kicker as well. From there, he transferred again, this time to our beloved Mountaineers, where he finished his collegiate career in 1991-1992. Once with WVU, he was tried as a punter until trading kicking duties with Todd Sauerbrun. After college, Mike spent several years in the CFL before catching on with the Colts. After the Colts and a stint with the Cowboys and another in the CFL, he retired as the most accurate FG kicker in NFL and CFL history. He is now a high school head coach in Marco Island, Florida.
