With Czajkowski out, State lean on experience at kicker

N.C. State's last three games will be played without kicker Josh Czajkowski, who was injured on the Pack's final kickoff at Clemson Saturday.

Wolfpack coach Tom O'Brien said State will look at junior Ellis Flynt, a former Hofstra kicker, and Chris Hawthorne, who played at Leesville Road in Raleigh, will compete for the job. O'Brien said it might work out that one kicks field goals and other kicks off, depending on how practice goes.

Hawthorne, by the way, is a true freshman - O'Brien mistakenly said he went to Wakefield High - but will not be redshirted because of Czajkowski's injury.
