Miles also noted that Tuesday was the start of an on-going tryout for placekicker with former LSU women’s soccer standout Mo Isom among the participants. The tryouts will continue on Thursday.
“If she gave us an opportunity and an advantage, we will certainly consider that,” Miles said of Isom’s chances of making the squad. “There has to be an advantage to the team. The good thing about this is that she’s an athlete. She’s been through team before and she understands commitment. I would have much less reservations with her than I would with any number of other people who frankly didn’t know what they were getting in to.”
Miles said that there was no timetable placed on making a decision if Isom, or any other player taking part in the tryouts, made the team. LSU returns the most accurate placekicker in school history in senior Drew Alleman, who converted 16-of-18 field goals in his first year as a starter with the Tigers in 2011.
