Workaholic: Kicker Gabriel Rui emerged unexpectedly for KU

Somehow, the same specialist who badly missed a 40-yard field goal from the left hash in the KU football spring game and sent a 39-yarder from the middle of the field wide right — with no real rush presented by the defense — turned into the program’s best placekicker in at least a decade. “I’m not sure, going into fall camp,” KU head coach David Beaty said of Gabriel Rui, “if anybody would have gave him the chance to be the starter, and all he did was keep his head down and just keep working.” By Benton Smith
