Kickers and punters are probably the least-talked-about of all the Division-1 football recruits in the country, and yet, special teams plays such an important role in deciding football games.
A punter from District 6 has verbally committed to a Division-1 football program.
Andrew Cerett, punter for the Huntingdon Area Bearcats, verbally committed to Temple Monday, according to Rivals.com.
Cerett’s Rivals’ profile showed Temple as the only offer, but he had drawn interest from some notable D-1 programs, like UCLA, Michigan State, and Notre Dame.
The senior-to-be averaged 39.8 yards per punt last season on 24 attempts, with a long of 60. Cerett also handled some of the kickoff chores for the Bearcats, averaging 51 yards per attempt on nine tries, with a long of 58.
Huntingdon Area, which has won six District 6 football championships, is a Class “AA” school that competes in the Mountains Athletic Conference.
