Punt pitch

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Sopho­more punter Blake John­son made his first me­dia ap­pear­ance since win­ning the start­ing job in the spring and gave his work in camp a thumbs up.

“I’ve been work­ing re­ally hard and do­ing a re­ally good job hon­estly, hit­ting re­ally con­sis­tent balls that are go­ing pretty far and do­ing what I’m sup­posed to,” John­son said.

John­son said his av­er­age in camp is more than 40 yards per punt, and his hang time has been more than 4.0 sec­onds.

“I def­i­nitely did great in the spring and have had a great camp so far,” said John­son, who has cred­ited much of his im­prove­ment to Toby Baker, the Hogs start­ing punter the past two years.
