Landon Foster on 2013 CFPA Punter Trophy Watch List

UK Football v4 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (7/2/13) – University of Kentucky sophomore punter Landon Foster has been named to the 2013 College Football Performance Awards Punter Trophy Watch List after a successful rookie campaign last fall when he set a school record in yards-per-punt average by a UK freshman, the CFPA announced recently.
 
Foster joins junior defensive end Alvin “Bud” Dupree and senior linebacker Avery Williamson on a preseason watch list after Dupree was named to the 2013 CFPA Defensive Lineman Trophy Watch List and Williamson earned a spot on the 2013 CFPA Linebacker Trophy Watch List. Former UK star Danny Trevathan, who is currently playing for the Denver Broncos in the National Football League, won the 2011 CFPA Linebacker Trophy.
 
All CFPA recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams. All players are eligible for awards at their respective positions; players are not preemptively eliminated from consideration. More than 130 CFPA recipients have signed professional contracts, and twenty-one have been first-round NFL Draft selections. The full list of 2013 CFPA recipients will be announced on January 8, 2014.
 
Foster had an immediate impact for the Wildcats last season as a true freshman handling all of the punting responsibilities and posting a 42.9 yards-per-punt average – the best mark ever by a UK freshman punter. The strong season led Foster to Freshman All-America honors by Scout.com and CollegeFootballNews.com, while SEC coaches tabbed Foster a Freshman All-SEC performer. The native of Franklin, Tenn., 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-yardline an impressive 13 times last season.
