The Season so Far....

It has been a good season for the OzPunt boys in the US.  We have seen a number of boys start their first College season, and also some playing their last season.

Some great highlights so far have been that both Jay Karutz and Cayle Chapman were nominated for the Best Punter in the Nation at the College level in 2012. 

Jay Karutz, has been selected First Team All-Mid-American Conference for the 2012 college football season.  Cayle was also selected Second Team All-Western Athletic Conference (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season.

Matt Foster was also selected ?1st team all-conference due to his great Punting this season.  Matt’s team Sam Houston State is currently playing in the knockout competition which will determine who plays in the National Championship game.  Last year Matt’s team made the final, however they unfortunately lost, so Matt is super determined to win this year, as this is his last season of College Football.

The summer here in Australia has uncovered a great batch of new Punters and Kickers to follow in the steps of Jay, Cayle and Matt to name a few.  I look forward to seeing how they continue to improve over the coming months.

With still a lot of camps coming up over the next few months, it is a great time to come along and have a kick.  As we always say at OzPunt, it is never to late or too early to give it a go, and see whether this is something for you.

OzPunt - A Year in Review and Beyond

With one week until the start of a new NCAA Football season, I wanted to take a look back on last year’s guys and some of the rings the boys won.

Matt Foster had a great year, making a national final and also winning a conference ring with Sam Houston.  Matt is about to start his last year of College Football and I am sure Matt will want it to a big year, and sure to bring home another ring.

Chris Stockdale as a freshman was lucky enough for him and his team to win a Championship ring.

If you are new to American Football, winning championship rings is what it is all about.  What is even more exciting for the two boys above is that they had never kicked an American Football until they came to OzPunt.

There is a large number of OzPunt boys who will be playing their first game of the 2012 Season next week.  One of the bigger games will be played by Hamish Macinnes as his team Jacksonville State play Arkansas in Arkansas.  This will also be Hamish’s first game of American Football, and he will be playing in front of approximately 72,000 football fans, a sell out crowd for the Arkansas team.

Good luck to all the boys on the start of the season.

Kind regards,

Cameron McGillivray
