When Bucs kicker Patrick Murray walks through shopping malls or is seated at his favorite local restaurant, he isn’t usually bothered – or even mistaken – for a professional athlete. At just 5-foot-7, and listed probably a bit generously on the Bucs roster at 182 pounds, Murray doesn’t stand out in a crowd.
And while his size isn’t one normally associated with a pro football player, talk to Murray for just few minutes and you are quick to see not many professional athletes possess the confidence of the former Fordham University star.
Murray recently caught up with Joe Kania of Buccaneers.com in a segment on the team’s website called, “Getting To Know.” In Murray’s feature he talks about his battle with last season’s incumbent placekicker Connor Barth, his time spent playing Gaelic football, and his closeness with his father among a number of other topics.
