Kicker Szymanski leaving A&M

Szymanski.jpgKicker Matt Szymanski announced today that he is transferring from Texas A&M for personal reasons. He did not say where he intends to go this fall.

"I asked Coach [Mike] Sherman for my release for personal reasons," Szymanski said. "I have a lot of friends on the team and I wish them and Coach Sherman all the best."

A&M fans probably remember that Szymanski was a much-ballyhooed recruit when he graduated early from A&M Consolidated and moved across town to join the Aggies one year early. Over the last two years, Szymanski was 17-for-30 on field goal attempts during his career and 52-of-53 on extra points.

"Matt came to me asking to transfer for personal reasons and I will grant his request," A&M coach Mike Sherman said. "We appreciate the job Matt has done for Texas A&M and we wish him well."

nice kid, but a perfect example of being able to kick the ball a mile isn't nearly as important as being able to hit the broad side of a barn with the ball.

nothing personal... its just business.

17 of 30 is not good enough for A&M... they deserve much better.
