One of the top kickers in Ohio has been a long time commitment to Akron, according to his coach, Steve Trivisonno. Igor Iveljic originally committed to the Zips back in late August and he's done nothing to disappoint as a senior.
"He's got a cannon for a leg," his coach said. "This kid is a special story and a very good get for Akron."
Iveljic grew up in Bosnia, Germany and in the United States playing soccer. In fact, his coach said he never played football until last season. He spent the first two years at Mentor, one of the top programs in Clevlenad, playing soccer only.
As a junior, he made two of six field-goal attempts, was 31-of-34 on extra points and had 11 touchbacks on kickoffs.
This season he averaged 33.5 yards a punt and had a long of 50 yards. He was also eight of 12 in field goals and 24 of 26 in extra points. He was one for one from 50-plus yards and deadly inside the 40, missing only one kick.
