The Erie Express are happy to announce the return of K/P-Eric Rockwood (Alfred University) for the 2022 season. Eric begins his second season with the Express and returns as one of our starting kickers. In his first season with the Express, Eric played a major role in our perfect season and GDFL National Championship victory. 

Eric graduated from Allegany Limestone High School where he played football, baseball, soccer and basketball. Rockwood finished his high school career with 12 varsity letters and was selected to the Big 30 All-Star Game. Eric was a two sport athlete in college playing football and soccer for Alfred University. While there Eric was named All Empire 8 3x and Special Teams Player of the Year 3x as well. 

Rockwood set records in college for most field goals in a game, most consecutive extra points, most extra points in a season, most extra points in a career, most points kicking in a season and most points kicking in a career and earned his bachelors and MBA in accounting from Alfred University. Eric has played professionally indoors for the Buffalo Lightning. 

"We have been blessed for quite some time now at the kicker position but coming into last season we had some major concerns as we lost both of our veteran kickers. Although it was his first season with us, Eric stepped in and played like a veteran. He has a very positive team first attitude and does whatever is asked of him to put us in the best position to succeed. We are blessed to have him back and are expecting a great season from him in 2022"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
