Skaer hopes to fly high with Jets

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – When he didn’t get an invite to NFL mini camp Ben Skaer kept on working on kicking the football.

The former Lobos punter got a surprise Tuesday when he was invited to a tryout with the New York Jets. Skaer and three others will compete for one spot Friday morning in New York.

Skaer was an all Mountain West performer in his final season with the Lobos, ranking 7th in the nation in punting average with 45.8 yards per attempt. That is the best single season average in University of New Mexico history.
