INDOOR FOOTBALL: Axmen sign first player: Kicker Scott Enos

BEMIDJI — Bemidji’s new professional football team has its first player.

The Axemen announced Friday that they had signed kicker Scott Enos as the very first player for the Indoor Football League franchise, which is set to begin play February at the Sanford Center. Co-owner Chris Kokalis announced the signing in a press release.

Enos joins the Axemen after spending time with the Cedar Rapids Titans during the 2012 season, in which in made nine field goals in seven games.

Prior to that, Enos kicked at the University of Hawaii, becoming one of the most decorated placekickers in school history. After his 2010 senior campaign, Enos was named 2nd Team All-WAC and set seven different school kicking records including consecutive PATs made in a career (105-of-105) and single-season record for most PATs made (71). Enos also ranked 22nd nationally in scoring at the end of 2010, averaging 8.7 points per game.

“I’d like to thank Chris Kokalis and the Bemidji Axemen for giving me the opportunity to play the game I love,” Enos said in the release. “I’m very excited to be in a new place, and I look forward to meeting the people in the community.”

The Axemen don’t have a head coach yet but the team said they plan on announcing it in the coming weeks.
