    2016: The left-footed Boermeester, USC’s most experienced placekicker, will aim to win the job as a junior in 2016.

    2015: Boermeester, a sophomore placekicker in 2015, was forced into action at Oregon when Alex Wood was out with a concussion. He handled the placekicks (hitting all 4 of his PATs) and kicked off against Oregon, then just did the kickoffs in the final 3 games (UCLA, Stanford in the Pac-12 Championship Game and Wisconsin). Of his 22 kickoffs in 2015, 1 was a touchback and 6 pinned opponents within the 20. He also made 3 tackles.

    2014: Boermeester, who transferred to USC in the fall of 2014 from a junior college, redshirted as a sophomore placekicker in 2014. He was awarded a scholarship at USC by virtue of an NCAA rule known as “blueshirting” (it allows a non-recruited student-athlete to receive athletic financial aid after beginning practice and have that student-athlete count towards the next year’s signing class if the school has reached its NCAA-maximum aid limit for the current year).

    JUNIOR COLLEGE: Boermeester was named to the 2013 All-Southern California Football Association Southern Division second team as a freshman placekicker at Saddleback Junior College in Mission Viejo (Calif.). He hit 11-of-13 field goals (with a long of 43 yards) and 43-of-48 PATs in 2013.

    He did not play football in 2012, as he greyshirted (he did not enroll as a full-time college student).

    HIGH SCHOOL: He played baseball at Cathedral Catholic High in San Diego (Calif.), helping his team win the 2012 CIF San Diego Division III title as a senior outfielder.

    PERSONAL: He is a communication major at USC with a B+ average (3.32 GPA). He also played soccer as a youngster. His father, Peter, was a placekicker at UCLA (1977-78-79), where he still ranks 10th on the Bruins’ career field goals list (31) and 20th in points scored (160, leading UCLA in scoring his last 2 seasons) and setting a school record for consecutive games with a field goal (15) as he earned 1978 All-Pac-10 first team honors, then playing with the Cleveland Browns in 1980.
