Houston went and found themselves an Aussie to do the punting as well. Dane Roy is roughly the size of a defensive end or power forward at 6-7 and 240 pounds. He averaged 40 yards a punt put 20 inside the 20 and hit six of 50 yards or more.
The Coogs look to turn the kicking over Dalton Witherspoon, a JUCO transfer from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. Witherspoon hit a 58 yarder in junior college so he’s got a big leg.
Collin Wilder and D’Eriq King highlight the returning punt returners, though neither averaged more than five yards a return. King moves to quarterback so its doubtful that he continues to play in the return gamed. The same can be said for kickoff returners as Brandon Wilson took most of the kicks last season. He’s moved onto the NFL. Dillon Birden will get a look returning kicks heading into fall camp.
