A kicker or an offensive lineman? Penn State kicker Joey Julius weighs in at 271 pounds
Penn State kicker Joey Julius might physically resemble an offensive lineman, but don’t be deceived.
The program listed its starting place kicker at 5-foot-11 and an eye-popping 271 pounds on its updated roster. Last season, Julius weighed 259 pounds as a redshirt freshman.

Julius was relatively effective last season and quickly became a fan favorite in Happy Valley. He converted 10-of-12 field goal attempts and went 20-for-24 on point-after tries. He also has a pretty strong leg, averaging 61.96 yards per kickoff and booting 22 touchbacks.
Just don’t expect Julius to make many tackles on the kickoff team this season.
