August 13, 2014

Bryan Maley FootballA super sub last year, Bryan Maley of Eagle River is looking for more permanent work with the Wagner College football team this fall.

The senior placekicker has the inside track to be the starter after he proved in 2013 that he could handle the job filling in for injured all-conference kicker David Lopez, who is gone now.

Maley, of Chugiak High fame, made 3-of-4 field goals and all seven PATs.

He also provided his signature moment at Wagner, booting a game-winning 45-yard field goal with four seconds left to beat Northeast Conference champion Sacred Heart.

That kick earned Maley NEC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Used primarily as a kickoff specialist, Maley had five touchbacks on 17 kickoffs last year. In 2011, as a freshman, he finished with 25 kickoffs for a 59-yard average.
