Texas Tech’s Dominic Panazzolo Named Special Teams Player of the Week
With a big win on the road against TCU for the Red Raiders, there were a lot of great takeaways from that ballgame. One of the biggest was the fantastic play from the special teams, keeping the Horned Frogs pinned deep each time the ball was punted away.
On Monday morning, the Big 12 Conference released their player of the week honors for the previous week's football games, and one Red Raider special teams player was recognized for his exceptional leg against the Frogs.
Panazzolo downed three of his seven punts inside the 20, including one on the one-yard line and another on the two-yard line, both of which were in the fourth quarter. Panazzolo averaged 42.4 yards per punt in the victory at TCU en route to his first weekly recognition.
I mean, just look at this thing of beauty:
If there was ever a time to acknowledge that #PuntersArePeopleToo, as well as a perfect #ForTheBrand moment, this is definitely it.
Congrats to Texas Tech's ambidextrous punter from down under. Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!
