The newest placekicker for the Washington Demons football team made a good first impression Friday night. Junior Kyle Anderson has been tasked with replacing all-district kicker Jacob Baughman, whose eight field goals made in 2014 set the school record.

Anderson converted all three of his extra point attempts, and drilled a 29-yard field goal through the uprights as time expired in the first half in the Demons’ 42-24 setback to the No. 1 Pella Little Dutch.

Head football coach Garrison Carter says Anderson was especially good at placing his kickoff versus Pella as well, “It probably didn’t look great but all of his kicks were scripted and he kicked them exactly where we wanted him to.” Carter said, “We had an onside kick that was phenomenal and we should of recovered it. He squibbed a few kicks for us because we didn’t want to kick it deep to (Pella) and he did a great job with everything.”

Anderson and the Demons will make their 2015 home debut this Friday as Washington hosts the Marion Indians with kickoff set for 7 p.m. at Case Field.
