Jon Peattie

Jon Peattie Update

The same could be said for the newest Firecat, a kicker with a big name and impressive resume. Jon Peattie will begin his pro career tonight after starring for four seasons at the University of Miami, where he had 334 career points while missing only five extra points.

Peattie joined the Firecats for Thursday night’s practice — and ended it in style. He put a long field goal squarely through the uprights to work his new teammates into a frenzy. Peattie’s addition gives the Firecats a Burmuda Triangle of Hurricanes on the PAT and field-goal units — long snapper Brad Kunz and holder Ethenic Sands also went to college in Coral Gables.


Jon Peattie Signs with the Florida Firecats

Estero, FL- The Florida Firecats announced today the additions of former University of Miami kicker Jon Peattie and the return of the Firecats single season sack leader defensive lineman Tyronn Johnson.
Jon Peattie finished his career in Coral Gables as the ‘Canes 2nd leading scorer in school history with 336 points. In four years as Miami’s starter he connected on 64 field goal attempts and added 144 PAT’s. After a redshirt freshman season in 2002, Jon converted 99 consecutive extra points before his first miss in 2005, which was the second-longest streak in school history.
“I talked with Jon a few weeks back about coming in and playing for us,” said Firecats coach Kevin Bouis. “We get one of the most consistent kickers in Miami’s history and he gets some experience that could help him move up to the next level in 2008. Adding Jon should give us a big boost in our kicking game.”
