UTEP’s Mattox Heading to 49ers

Kicker Jay Mattox will be heading to the San Francisco 49ers for a minicamp tryout. The Las Vegas, Nv. native is the eighth Miner to receive an invitation to an NFL camp.

Jay Mattox was a four-year starter who played in all 49 games for the Miners. The kicker finished his collegiate career tied no. 1 in program history with 137 career PATs.

Mattox also rates no. 2 in program history with 257 career points (kickers only) and ranked no. 3 with 40 career field goals made. He concluded his senior campaign ranked second on team in points (54) and finished 39-of-40 on PATs. Mattox connected on a career-best 7-for-7 on PATs and tied his career high in points (10).

As a junior, he connected on a career-long 50-yard field goal during a win over Incarnate Word.

During his sophomore season, Mattox took over punting duties and averaged 41.1 yards on 41 punts (1,687 yards), putting nine inside the 20-yard line and booting eight 50-plus yard punts.

UTEP’s Taylor Receives Tryout with 49ers

Former Miner Kent Taylor will be heading to San Francisco, for a mini-camp tryout with the 49ers. Taylor is the seventh Miner to be heading to an NFL camp and the second tight end from UTEP.

Taylor hauled in a season-long 19-yard reception on a 3rd-and-8 play that helped lead the Miners’ first touchdown during a 5OT win at UTSA.
