Eastern Kentucky University punter Keith Wrzuszczak was selected to the 2017 Phil Steele Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-America Team, the publication announced on Friday. Wrzuszczak was a fourth team selection.
Wrzuszczak 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. The senior from Geelong, Victoria, Australia 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. He also broke his own program season average record (43.7 yards/punt), which he set in 2015.
In 2017 Wrzuszczak 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).
