Punter: Tom Hackett Next List » 3 of 3 « Prev
The punter position was undisputed, and that reportedly hasn’t changed. The Australian sophomore has already proven his worth after appearing in nine games last fall. He was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week in his first game in the United States. His expertise is pinning opponents deep inside their own territory. Last season, he planted 15 of his 25 punts inside the 20-yard line, including seven inside the 10-yard line and four inside the five-yard line. Hackett will also hold for field goals and PATs.

He may not have seen more time last season because of star Sean Sellwood, who played in all 13 games last season, ranked second in the Pac-12 in punt average and signed as a free agent with Atlanta.
