Chuck Priore has announced the signing of kicker Graham Ball (Lynn Haven, Fla.). Ball, a junior college transfer, will have three years of eligibility left.
"We're excited to have a player with Graham's ability," Priore said. We feel he'll be able to come in and compete for a spot immediately."
Ball spent 2011 at New Mexico Military Institute, where he led the Western States Football League in points (88). He went 58 of 62 on extra points and made 10 field goals, earning second team All-WSFL honors. The Broncos went 9-3, advancing to the C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl.
Ball was a 2009 All-Bay Country place-kicker and honorable mention soccer player as a senior at Mosley High School near Panama City.
