Jaime Salazar has been named the starting kicker for the Arizona Wildcats. He beat out Alex Zendejas for the starting role. Zendejas, a preseason Lou Groza award candidate, lost his job after a poor conclusion to the regular season and his incumbent performance this offseason. The Wildcats will look to improve on PATs and field goals this season. Their home-opener is September 3rd against DIV II in-state rival Northern Arizona.
