Bolen helped in the Eagles’ largest come-from-behind victory in program history, a 38-31 overtime win at Western Carolina last Saturday. He sent three of his five kickoffs through the endzone for a touchback and perfectly executed the team’s first on-sides kickoff attempt of the year.


The senior place kicker leads the Southern Conference with 10 touchbacks on 47 kickoff attempts, and the Eagles continue to rank first in the league in kickoff coverage with a 44.5 net yards average.

Bolen is a graduate of South Effingham High School.
