The popular NFL documentary series Hard Knocks airs tomorrow night at 9 p.m. Central, and this year focuses on the Rams’ return to Los Angeles. We’re not sure if rookie free agent and recent Aggie kicker Taylor Bertolet will be featured, but with 1500 hours of footage and being one of only two kickers on the squad, we may catch a glimpse of him at some point. He is competing with Greg Zuerlein for the kicking spot.

Taylor has already hit the highlights in LA, including the set of Friends.

Below is the official press release:
