Not just this week. Not just from the media. Every day. For a year.
That’s how often Arizona Wildcats senior kicker Alex Zendejas has heard about his two blocked extra points against Arizona State. The first came with 27 seconds left in regulation, leaving the game tied. The second came at the end of a second overtime in a 30-29 loss.
“A kick like that that, in a rivalry like this, knowing how intense it is between the two schools, it’s kind of hard to forget something like that,” he said this week.
Not that anyone will let him.
He said someone mentions the missed PATs to him every day.
“You have to take the good with the bad,” Zendejas said.
“Probably the same people who congratulated me two years ago are the ones mad at me a year ago. I guess it’s part of the game.”
