Northwestern State punter Scotty Roblow was named the Southland Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, the league announced Monday.
Roblow averaged 50.5 yards per punt Thursday, forcing Sam Houston to travel further distances as the Bearkats scored nearly 35 points under their season average in a 24-16 NSU loss on Thursday.
The redshirt freshman punted four times for a total of 202 yards, pinning the Bearkats inside the 20-yard line once.
Roblow, a C.E. Byrd product, earned his first career player of the week award and NSU’s first weekly award of the season.
He assumed punting duties in spring camp after serving as a kicker in 2019, and he’s averaging nearly 42 yards per punt.
Of his 24 punts this season, nine have been inside the 20-yard line with six traveling 50 yards or more.
