Still Getting His Kicks

It isn't always over when it's over ;-)

Former Dartmouth kicker/punter Matt Kelly '11, was back on the field this spring and summer as a kicker for Oregon's Washington County Pit Bulls of The Pacific Football League, an organization featuring teams from Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
Stats are a little hard to come by, but apart from one block Kelly was perfect on more than 25 extra point tries, booted field goals of 43 and 46 yards and came up just short on a 55-yard effort. He helped the Pit Bulls finish the season with a 5-3 mark.

Kelly is living in Beaverton, Ore., working in an account manager-type role for a Portland company whose proprietary software helps manage fleet inventory and risk management in the aoto and trucking industry.

Kelly was Dartmouth's starting punter in 2009.
