Former Liberty High, UC Davis grad Schmidt signs free agent deal with the San Francisco 49ers

Schmidt goes from Liberty to free agent deal

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Former Liberty High kicker Colton Schmidt may be hitting the big time, as the San Francisco 49ers announced he signed a free agent deal with the team today.

Schmidt played collegiately at UC Davis and joins a 49ers squad which already features veterans Andy Lee and Phil Dawson.

Lee is one of the best punters in the league and the veteran Dawson continues to kick field goals with consistent accuracy.

Lee and Dawson will rest most of the preseason while Schmidt will get a lot of work taking on kickoff, field goal and extra point duties.
