Special teams

If Notre Dame can even get to above average on special teams they can potentially have a 10-win season. Back is kicker Justin Yoon, pictured, who sat out spring ball with an injury. Also returning is punter Tyler Newsome who struggled at times last year. Yoon has the leg to be an elite college kicker. He went 13 for 17 on field goals last season. C.J. Sanders should be the main kick returner. The junior has four career kickoff/punt returns for touchdown which puts him fourth all-time. If he can force teams to kick away from him and give the offense good field position, the Irish can score a lot of points.
