N.C. State's Czajkowski out for season
Posted November 8, 2010
N.C. State kicker Josh Czajkowski is out for the rest of the regular season, head coach Tom O'Brien said Monday.
Czajkowski strained his hamstring while chasing down Clemson's Marcus Gilchrist on his last kick in Saturday's 14-13 loss. Gilchrist returned the kickoff 76 yards.
Czajkowski made 2-of-3 field-goal attempts and an extra point in the game. He's 14 of 18 on field goals this season and hit all but one of his 34 extra-point attempts.
O'Brien said J. Ellis Flint or Chris Hawthorne will kick for N.C. State on Saturday against Wake Forest. He said a decision will be made this week.
Flint is a redshirt sophomore from Amsterdam, N.Y. Hawthorne is a true freshman from Raleigh's Leesville Road High School.
The Wolfpack (6-3, 3-2 ACC) hosts Wake Forest (2-7, 1-5) on Saturday at 2 p.m.
