RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University punter Keith Wrzuszczak was chosen to the 2017 STATS Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-America Team on Tuesday. Wrzuszczak was a second team selection.
STATS is one of the premier media outlets for FCS football.
Last week, Wrzuszczak was picked as a fourth team selection on the 2017 Phil Steele FCS All-America Team.
The senior set a pair of program records this season while finishing first in the conference and sixth in the nation with an average of 44.1 yards per punt. He broke the 51-year-old EKU record of 78 yards with an 84-yard punt against Tennessee-Martin. It was the second-longest punt in FCS this season. Wrzuszczak also broke his own program season average record (43.7 yards/punt), which he set in 2015.
In 2017 the Geelong, Victoria, Australia native punted 58 times and only five of them were touchbacks. He placed 19 punts inside the 20 yard line and had 11 punts of 50 or more yards. He helped Eastern lead the conference and finish second in the nation in net punting (41.14 yards/punt).
Wrzuszczak was a preseason All-America pick by STATS and earned STATS Honorable Mention National Special Teams Player of the Week recognition twice.
