Each day I've been breaking down the position battles to watch this summer, and Duke happened to fall today, which is good because the focus is on the Coastal Division. Here's a look at the spots still up for grabs in Durham:

KICKER
*Joe Surgan -- A senior who started in 2005 & 2006, but lost the job midway through 2007.

* Nick Maggio -- The sophomore who won Surgan's job.
* Paul Asack -- True freshman and backup quarterback Zack Asack's brother.
* Will Snyderwine -- He's a sophomore walk-on who didn't play last year, but has a heckuva last name for a kicker.

RIGHT SAFETY
Catron Gainey -- Junior who started three games in 2007. He was listed as the starter following spring practice.
Adrian Aye-Darko -- Senior who started 20 career games including 9-of-12 in 2007. He has 122 career tackles.

RIGHT DEFENSIVE END
Wesley Oglesby -- Sophomore who started 10 games in 2007 and was listed as the starter following spring practice.
Greg Akinbiyi -- Senior who started 7 games last year opposite of Oglesby.

No. 3 WIDE RECEIVER
Sheldon Bell -- Redshirt sophomore who was listed as the starter following spring practice, but will have some competition from sophomore Austin Kelly.
