Evensen, who has played professionally in arena leagues and overseas, just completed performing at a regional kicking combine and is awaiting other professional opportunities. In the meantime, he plans to kick for the Boltz, rejoining coach Aaron Fentress, whom Evensen kicked for with the Portland Monarchs in 2011.
“Matt is a weapon,” Fentress said. “Although, in our high-scoring offense he hasn’t had as many field goal chances as he might have liked, he certainly has had numerous chances to show off his powerful leg on kickoffs. He once had nine touchbacks in single game for my former team. We hope to give him the same number of opportunities on a weekly basis this season and maybe with a few more field goal attempts sprinkled in.”
