Landon Foster on the 2013 CFPA Punter Trophy Watch List


Congrats to sophomore punter Landon Foster, who was named to the 2013 CFPA Punter Trophy Watch List this afternoon after a successful rookie season.

Foster was one of the only bright spots from last year’s squad, making the most of UK’s offensive woes. As a true freshman, he posted a 42.9 yards-per-punt average — the best mark ever by a UK freshman punter. He averaged a season-high 50.7 yards in UK’s win over Kent State, while his longest punt was a 58-yard blast against Arkansas. In all, Foster trapped UK’s opponents inside their own 20-yard line an impressive 13 times last season.

Foster received Freshman All-America honors from and, while SEC coaches tabbed Foster a Freshman All-SEC performer. He’s one of three UK players named to a preseason watch list, along with junior defensive end Alvin “Bud” Dupree and senior linebacker Avery Williamson, who were named to the 2013 CFPA Defensive Lineman Trophy Watch List and 2013 CFPA Linebacker Trophy Watch List, respectively.

Punter U!

    Congratulations Landon! Some people might make fun of this, unfortunately. They don’t understand that a great punter is hard to come by, and can be the difference between an opposing team getting the ball in position to get just 1 first down to be in field goal range, and having to put a whole drive together before they can even think about points. I for one appreciate the hell out of you! Can’t wait to see you pin em deep all next year!!

    It IS great to have a good punter when needed, and Foster is definitely a good one. But as Jenkins said, hopefully he won’t play much this year. Foster averaged 43 yards per punt and pinned the opponents inside their own 20 yard line 13 times last season, that means we weren’t even getting to midfield on way too many of our drives. We were very lucky to have Foster last season, but let’s give our red zone offense more time to shine this year. Go CATS

    I don’t know about you but I am hopeful that soon, Stoop’s offense won’t punt 7 out of 10 times and we won’t have to attract or need to develop the best punters. No more Punter U!

    I hope he plays enough to to get the chances that Masthay did so he to can make it to the NFL…. and u Know Georgia, Alabama, and LSU have some pretty damn good punters to I bet they are glad to have them…. Punting is about flipping the field position and is one of the Keys to the game……
