Constantinou Named SEC Punter of the Week
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Sophomore Nik Constantinou was named the Southeastern Conference Punter of the Week after an impressive performance in Texas A&M’s 34-0 victory over New Mexico, the league office announced Monday.
The Melbourne, Australia, native punted four times for 182 yards, averaging 45.5 yards per punt in A&M’s blanking of New Mexico. All four of Constantinou’s punts were killed inside the 20-yard line with his long of 61 yards being downed at the 5-yard line. On his next punt, Constantinou forced a fair catch at the Lobo 8-yard line.
