I suppose we’re really stretching it when looking for ways to highlight our punter as a superstar, but the Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t exactly had the best player development in recent years. NFL.com pushed out their “All-Under-25 Team” and Bryan Anger has continued to bring a good name to Jacksonville. In the preface, writer Elliot Harrison writes, “There is a dark horse or two, a Jacksonville Jaguar and at least one dude you might not have heard about.”
I suppose all press is good press, right?
Anger beat out all other punters below the age of 25 to land on the team. If you’re scratching your head trying to figure out which other NFL punters are under 25 with 20 or more punts, I looked it up for you: Johnny Hecker (St. Louis, 23), Drew Butler (Pittsburgh, 23), Brad Nortman (Carolina, 23), Shawn Powell (Buffalo Bills, 24). If that isn’t a prestigious list then I don’t know what is.
