Tampa Bay Buccaneer Coach Jon Gruden, either slumming or in a show of family support, went to an Arena Football League game to watch the Orlando Predators, coached by his brother, Jay. Cornered by a television reporter, Jon was asked, "So what do you think?" His response: "I like what that Los Angeles kicker is doing." Everyone, it seems, likes Remy Hamilton. The problem for Hamilton is that few have been clamoring to give him the opportunity to earn a job in the National Football League.

Are you sitting down, Notre Dame? Good, because the Michigan kicker who sent the game-winning 42-yard field goal through the silence of Notre Dame Stadium Saturday, who provided the Wolverines with a 26-24 victory in the waning seconds, was an absolute basket case about five months ago. Certifiably useless. Couldn't make an extra point, much less a field goal. His teammates winced when they heard his name. His coaches winced when they said it. In spring practice he missed every kick he tried.

The offensive catalyst that pushed the Avengers on Friday night not once handled the ball on offense. Such are the oddities of Arena Football. Remy Hamilton, the Avengers' kicker, was perfect on five field goals and sparked a second-half surge with kickoffs in Los Angeles' 64-51 victory over the Austin Wranglers at Austin, Texas. Quarterback John Kaleo, who played for Austin last season, threw five touchdown passes, four in the second half.

A bye week probably arrived at the right time for the Avengers. There's no question it came at a perfect time for kicker Remy Hamilton. Less than 15 hours after Monday night's 53-52 overtime loss to the Georgia Force at Staples Center, Hamilton's wife, Heather, delivered the couple's first child, a boy named Tate. The Avengers are not scheduled to play again until March 14 at Grand Rapids, giving Hamilton an opportunity for bonding time with his son.

Avenger kicker Remy Hamilton did not have much time to dwell on two missed field-goal attempts in last week's overtime loss against Arizona. On Tuesday, two days after the defeat, Hamilton was in Kirkland, Wash., for a tryout with the NFL's Seattle Seahawks. Hamilton, one of four kickers at the tryout, said he relished the spaciousness of stadium-football goalposts that feature an 18 1/2-foot expanse with a 10-foot high crossbar.
