2006 Media Guide: Looks to be the heir apparent to Josh Huston in terms of field goals and extra points … has the unenviable task of following in the footsteps of Mike Nugent (2002-04) and Huston (2005), two of the better place-kickers in Ohio State history … has 50-yard range and is very accurate … plays with a quiet confidence … could also handle kickoffs, but is expected to focus on field goals and PATs, at least to start the season … is the oldest player on the Ohio State squad … played in two games last year – Indiana and Northwestern … was on vacation in France and decided to visit the United States and explore the possibility of playing football on the collegiate level … made a video of himself and sent it to numerous schools at the suggestion of former NFL player Gary Anderson, who is also from Durban and is a friend of the family … was offered a spot as a preferred walk-on and enrolled in the Fall of 2004.
2005: Made his lone two appearances of the year against Indiana and Northwestern and had a kickoff in each game – neither was returned.
2004: Worked with the kickers, but did not see any game action.
High School: Played soccer and rugby and ran track (the 800) … was the captain of the soccer and rugby teams … received honors in both soccer and rugby … has literally played rugby all over the world.
Personal: Is the son of Denny and Terry Pretorius … is married to the former Amy Gold (will celebrate their third anniversary in December 2006) … has a younger sister, Julie, who lives just outside London … enjoys all sports (rugby, tennis, skiing or just about anything with a ball).
