Bielefeld, Germany (NNCNOW.com) --- Former University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) quarterback Chase Vogler knew he'd be trying his hand at semi-professional football when he signed his contract with the Bielefeld Bulldogs, but he didn't know he'd wind up as the team's primary punter.

Vogler punted three times in Bielefeld's second game of the season, averaging 47.7 yards per kick and finishing with a long of 66 yards.

He said via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon that he expects to be the team's primary punter for the rest of the season, but it was unclear whether that was by design or because of injury to another player.

Vogler has also excelled at the quarterback position for Bielefeld, playing in both games and completing 36-of-57 passes for 431 yards and four touchdowns. He's also added 131 yards rushing and a score to go along with 31 yards receiving through the first two games.

Bielefeld is (2-0) thus far in the 2013 German Football League II season and will next be in action May 18 against Hamburg.
