Former Aggie Randy Bullock Battling For Texans Kicking Job

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT

Reliant Stadium, where the Texans play their games, is also home to the world's largest rodeo.  So boots are a big deal in Houston.  Randy Bullock, the first placekicker ever drafted by the Texans hopes his boots are the ones on display on Sundays this fall.

"I'm here to do a job and that's my first focus," says Bullock.

The rookie is no stranger to the Bayou City, as Bullock graduated from Klein High School on Houston's North side.  He's also no stranger to success.  The fifth round draft pick left Texas A&M as the most accurate kicker in Aggies history on his way to first team All-America honors his senior year.

"He handles himself very well," says Texans head coach Gary Kubiak.  "He handled himself well in college, I expect him to handle himself well here, that's why we drafted him."

Bullock attributes that poise to his days in College Station.  "It's just something you do, that you develop over your career," says Bullock.  "Playing at a big school like A&M definitely helped me a whole lot."

Bullock is competing for the placekicking job with 11 year NFL veteran Shayne Graham.  In Houston's first preseason game, both Bullock and Graham were two-for-two on field goal attempts.  Randy's 52 yarder matched his career long at A&M.

"When I came in I didn't expect anything to be given to me," says Bullock.  "It's part of the National Football League so everything else will work itself out."

Bullock plans to finish his petroleum engineering degree at Texas A&M next spring.  And like most college graduates, when he walks across that stage, he hopes his job is safely secured.
