RM Kicks for Cal

BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA -- Cal place-kicker Mark-Christian Jensen hopes to end the string of bad luck experienced last year by Bears place kickers. Last year, the Bears place kickers were dead-on during practice but experienced a bleak showing once on the field.

Jensen, 24, who served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, had been recruited by Brigham Young University, but passed over by the Cougars. His attempts last week in a game against Utah gave him an opportunity to show his stuff. He missed on his first attempt but did make his second kick, as Cal went on to beat Utah 24-21.

The pressure was increased this week with Cal playing Illinois in Champaign Saturday, since the game will be on national TV.

Jensen has a goal this year - in addition to being good on his kicks. "I want to make a statement about myself and about Cal kickers," he said.

Coach Tom Holmoe, also a member of the Church says, "I feel really good about Mark," Holmoe said. "He had a great camp and a great offseason."
