LOCAL STAR TO COMPETE IN STEEL CITY

Former Holy Cross and Southern Mississippi kicker Danny Hrapmann has signed a free agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In his career at USM, Hrapmann made 116-of-117 extra points and connected on 49-of-65 field goals (75%), scoring 263 points.

In 2011, Hrapmann was 61-of-62 on extra points and made 23-of-34 field goals for the Golden Eagles.

Hrapmann started his college career at Southeastern Louisiana in 2007 before transferring to Southern Miss.

The 5'9, 164" Hrapmann enjoyed a stellar career under Barry Wilson at Holy Cross.

He was a two-time All-District 8-5A selection and was named to the New Orleans All-Metro and the 5A All-State team with the Tigers.

nice pickup... here's what walterfootball had on him....

Danny Hrapmann, K, Southern Miss
Height: 5-9. Weight: 160.
Projected Round (2011): 6-FA.

4/26/12: Hrapman did not kicked as well in 2011. He was 23-of-34 on field goal attempts. His strong leg caused him to take on some attempts that other teams wouldn't try.

8/22/11: Danny Hrapmann is a strong-legged kicker who had a quality 2010 season. He was 26-of-31 overall. Hrapmann connected on 6-of-8 from 40-49 yards and 2-of-3 from 50+ yards. He had six touchbacks last season with a streak of 17 field goals made in a row.

Wonder if he will last. The other 2 left in a hurry. How hard is it to find a decent kicker?

Of his misses in 2011 (67.7% accuracy)

3 were from 50+ (0 of 3 total)
6 were from 40-49 yards (7 of 13 total)
2 were in 30-39 range (5 of 7 total)
0 in 20-29 range (11of 11)

His 2010 was very good
2010 26 of 31 83.9% 55/55 extra points

I believe he can punt as well in a emergency capacity. Could have a shot if he regains 2010 form.

WRITTEN BY ED BOUCHETTE

--- The Steelers reportedly have signed another kicker, Danny Hrapmann of Southern Mississippi. Dave Byan wrote in his Steelers Depot blog that former kicker Michael Husted wrote of the signing on Twitter. The Steelers have still not announced their release of undrafted rookie kicker Grant Ressel, who was released 10 days ago. Perhaps they will announce the Hrapmann signing -- if indeed they have signed him -- sometime before training camp begins. The Steelers do not seem serious in signing anyone to compete with Shaun Suisham, but merely to have a second leg in camp as normal.

NOT confident in Sushiam. Hopefully this guy will last until camp, and split the load in preseason. May the best man win including touchbacks.

yeah me neither. i remember watching the chiefs game last year with my brother (who's a chiefs fan) and when we didnt attempt a long 48+ yard fg, he was like "oh that's disrespect right there!", and I was like 'dude, have you seen this guy kick? they're not going for the fg cause he won't make that.'
