Kicker leads Hoggard prospects

WILMINGTON, N.C.- The younger brother of highly-decorated North Carolina kicker Connor Barth, Casey Barth, leads a group of three potential Division I-A prospects at Hoggard High for the Class of 2008.

The younger Barth, also a kicker, could be tops at that position in the Tar Heel state for the forthcoming season. He made 77-of-78 extra point attempts (the one he missed was blocked) and hit 7-of-9 field goals with a long of 50 yards.
