Junior Mauro Bondi and incoming freshman Drew Brown are among the other candidates to earn the starting place-kicking job.
Lindsay has distinguished himself in the classroom and community. He carries a 3.516 cumulative grade-point average in history and was also named to the Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne Citizenship teams for his community outreach involvement.
