Thomas Morstead made for a tough act to follow, but Blake Gillikin is going to give it his best shot. He spent a year waiting in the wings on injured reserve (with a back issue, nominally) and now the Penn State product gets his shot.

One fun stat about Gillikin 53 punts inside the 10 at Penn State.
