“Give me an army of West Point graduates and I’ll win a football game. Give me a handful of Aggie Punters and I’ll win a global thermonuclear war.” — General Zeke Amadeus Patton

Shane Lechler. Drew Kaser. That one guy who looked like the knockoff Dean Cain Superman who once finished a bowl game second on the team in tackles or something. The list of legendary Aggie Punters is virtually endless.

Go ahead and pencil another one in.

The senior from Allen set a school record last season with 27 punts downed inside the 20. He didn’t have a single touchback on 69 punts. He booted three 59-yarders over the course of the season. So on and so forth. Get your Ray Guy smack talk ready, you will need it this season. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. If there’s one thing we know we’ll need this year, it’s good punting.
