Iowa State punter Kirby Van Der Kamp is one of the best kickers in the country.  Van Der Kamp is a pre-season All-American, and a 4 year starter for the Cyclones.

Special teams often times get forgotten, but Van Der Kamp is a huge weapon for Iowa State at pinning opposing offenses deep in their own territory.

The former Valley Tiger actually thought he was going to play soccer in college, but after the scholarship offer from Paul Rhoads, it was a no brainer.

The Cyclones kick off their 2013 season Saturday August 31 against Northern Iowa at 7:00.
