By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M Football’s Braden Mann garnered his fourth All-America honor of 2019 after being named a second-team All-American by The Sporting News, announced Tuesday.

Mann, from Houston, Texas, ranks second nationally in punting going into the bowl season and posted his second-straight season with an average over 47 yards per kick. The senior boomed 28 punts of 50-or-more yards with 23 kicks downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. A season ago, Mann shattered the NCAA record book as he set marks for single game punt average, 50-yard punts in a season, and season punting average.

In addition to Sporting News All-American honors this season, Mann has been named an All-American by the Associated Press (second team), Sports Illustrated (first team) and CBSSports.com, as well as All-SEC by the AP (second team) and coaches (first team).
