Player Bio: UNLV: One of college football's top freshman kickers a year ago is also a local product and a UNLV legacy player ... Will vie for place-kicking and kickoff duties again this fall ... The first scholarship place-kicker signed by UNLV since former Rebel great Sergio Aguayo in 2003.

2010: Earned his first letter as a Rebel by starting all 13 games at place-kicker ... Turned in one of the top freshman campaigns for a booter in school history and was named to the Rivals.com Freshman All-MWC Team ... Made 8-of -11 field-goal attempts and did not miss from inside the 40-yard line ... Also nailed 29-of-30 extra-point attempts en route to leading the Rebels in points with 53 ... His 29 PATs set a UNLV freshman record and his 47-yard field goal at Colorado State broke UNLV Hall of Famer Nick Garritano's 20-year-old school record for longest three-pointer by a freshman ... Kohorst's two made field goals vs. UNR and Air Force also tied a school freshman record held by three others ... First collegiate field goal came on a 28-yarder at Utah in Game Two.

HIGH SCHOOL: A 2010 graduate of Green Valley HS in Henderson ... Kicked for three seasons and also punted as a senior for the Gators under coach Matt Gerber ... A three-star prospect by Scout who was ranked the No. 9 PK prospect in the nation ... Listed as the No. 21 kicker recruit by Rivals ... Named the PK on the Las Vegas Sun's All-Decade Team ... Made 25 field goals during his three-year career with the Gators and was named first team All-Sunrise Region all three years ... Made five field goals and hit 18-of-21 extra points as a senior ... Connected on 10 field goals with a long of 54 yards and was 21-of-22 on extra points as a junior ... Booted a 54-yarder and 51-yarder in one game in a 2008 win over Coronado HS ... Also a pitcher for GVHS and earned all-state honors in 2009 under baseball coach Nick Garritano, who was, ironically, one of the top long-range kickers in UNLV history.

PERSONAL: Nolan Cutler Kohorst was born on Dec. 16, 1992 ... The son of Kim and Dr. Keith Kohorst ... Keith, who is an optometrist in Las Vegas, played offensive line at UNLV and lettered for the Rebels in 1981-82 ... Has a younger brother, Clinton ... Cousin Matt Kohorst plays baseball at Kansas ...
