Heading into the 2018 season, few would have expected Aldrick Rosas to be in the premier rank of NFL kickers, let alone one of the best in the league. That being said, Rosas put his 2017 in the past, worked with a former Giants pro bowl kicker and trusted the support of his organization, all leading to being named the NFC’s Pro Bowl kicker for 2018.
“I don’t know how to describe it – shocking,” Rosas said on Wednesday. “Just to get that support and votes from my peers and the fans, and everybody in the building, this organization just being behind me. It’s real special.”
The combination of working day-by-day and taking a different mental approach is what turned the Southern Oregon NAIA college athlete into the best kicker in the NFC. And the ever so humble Rosas is letting the feeling sink in.
