LSU’S VON ROSENBERG NAMED RAY GUY AWARD PUNTER OF WEEK


BATON ROUGE – LSU senior punter Zach Von Rosenberg has been named the Ray Guy Award Punter of the Week for his performance in the Tigers’ 27-24 win over Arkansas on Saturday.

Von Rosenberg’s punting was critical to LSU’s success against Arkansas as five of his seven punts were downed inside the 10-yard line. In the second half alone, Von Rosenberg had punts downed at the 9, 5, 8 and 7-yard lines. He also had a punted downed at the 8-yard line in the first quarter.

We are about to go from having the Best QB/WR/(RB IMO)/Offense to having the best punter in the league. Good for the old man, not what we wanted to be best at, but its still an award.

His great punts meant the defense gave up many more yards.

His excellent punting was critical to the win. Congrats! Nevertheless, I liked watching the team more when we had fewer punts!!
