Eberle's New Regime; XFL's Seattle Sea Dragons sign Utah State Kicker Dominik Eberle
The Seattle Sea Dragons made a last-minute addition to enhance their special teams unit on February 6th with the addition of Kicker Dominik Eberle. Let's discuss that;
Eberle (Pronounced EH-brr-lee), a 26-year-old Kicker, played with the Aggies from 2016-2019 and suited up for a total of 43 games, amassing an impressive 359 points scored. He attempted 81 field goals and completed 64 of those attempts, for a success rate of just under 80%. During his time at Utah State, he tied two NCAA records when he scored 24 points in a single game, including six field goals, three of which were from 51 yards out, making him just the sixth player ever to kick three 50-yard field goals in a game. Eberle also holds eight all-time records with the program, including his 359 points scored, 8.34 points per game, 64 made field goals, 167 extra points made and 167 extra points attempted. He is tied for first all-time in PAT percentage at 100%. His streak of 167 consecutive PATs made is also a school record. Eberle also handled kickoff duties for the Aggies, kicking off 257 times for an average of 61 yards.
After going undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft, Eberle bounced between the Las Vegas Raiders and Carolina Panthers practice squads. He eventually took to the field in 2021 and 2022, taking over for injured starters. During this time, he attempted a total of 4 field goals and made 3 of them from 25, 49, and 51 yards out. Eberle was also 7/9 on PATs during this time.
As the Sea Dragons make their final preparations to take on their opponents in the inaugural season, they can rest assured that they have a reliable and talented Kicker to lead their special teams unit. With Eberle's professional experience and a history of success at the collegiate level, fans can look forward to seeing what Dominik can do on the field come February 19th.
