Rehkow earns national honor
Idaho freshman punter Austin Rehkow was named the Ray Guy Award National Punter of the Week on Monday.
The honor comes after Rehkow averaged 51.1 yards on seven punts in the Vandals’ 61-14 loss against Fresno State on Saturday in the Kibbie Dome. Five of Rehkow’s punts went more than 50 yards with a long of 58.
Rehkow also handles kicking duties for Idaho.
The Ray Guy Award honors the best college football punter each week, as well as the best punter of the season at the end of the year.
