Idaho’s Rehkow named All-American

Idaho freshman Austin Rehkow, who starred at Central Valley High, was selected as a first-team punter on the Walter Camp All-America team on Thursday. Rehkow, the nation's leader in punting average this season at 47.8 yards, became just one of eight freshmen to be honored on the Camp first-team in its 124-year history.  

“It’s definitely an honor to be recognized as such,” Rehkow said in an an Idaho press release. “It’s a pretty cool thing.”

Rehkow set Idaho's single-season punting record, surpassing T.J. Conley’s 2008 average of 47.4 yards per punt. Conley, a senior in 2008, also was a Camp All-American. Rehkow garnered numerous weekly national awards this fall, including the Ray Guy Award Punter of the Week.
