Buffalo Bills Kicker Dan Carpenter to Be Inducted into Helena Hall of Fame
22 Feb 2015
Buffalo Bills fans have had a lot of reasons to like Dan Carpenter over the last two seasons, but they aren't the only ones. His former high school in Helena, Montana has announced that Carpenter, along with a handful of other local athletes, will be inducted into the Helena Sports Hall of Fame.

Carpenter played for Helena High School from 2001-03. While the Buffalo Bills have exclusively utilized him as a kicker, Carpenter also served as a punter and a wide receiver in high school. During his time with the Helena Bengals, he set a number of school records, including longest field goal, most receiving yards in a single season and most touchdown receptions in a single season. He also set the school track record in the javelin. Carpenter is only the fifth person from the city to go on to play in the NFL.

Carpenter has been a huge asset since the Buffalo Bills signed the free agent in 2013. Carpenter currently holds the Buffalo Bills franchise single-season record for field goals. He was also named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after kicking the winning field goal in Buffalo's week one victory over the Chicago Bears.

Carpenter and the other alumni will officially be inducted into the Helena Sports Hall of Fame on July 16.
