08/31/15 - JK Scott's bio after one season as Alabama's punter takes up a full page in the media guide and begins with heady praise. "Produced the best season for a punter in Alabama football history..." The third-ranked Crimson Tide sophomore might not get recognized much on campus - that's a punter's lot, after all - but his booming punts made him one of the team's most acclaimed players straight out of high school in Denver. "My freshman year was awesome," Scott said. "The transition from high school to college was amazing. There's a lot more fans and hype going towards the game and stuff. It was a lot of fun." The Tide opens Saturday against Wisconsin in Arlington, Texas.
Scott was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award after leading the nation's punters with a 48-yard average. Perhaps more impressively, his punts went for a net average of nearly 45 yards and only 12 were returned - for a total of 83 yards. His punting and net punting averages would have led the NFL last season, too. The 6-foot-5, 198-pounder can still stroll around campus anonymously, unlike many of his teammates. It comes with the position, and perhaps the lanky build. "I don't even look like a football player," Scott said. "If anything, they think I'm a basketball player walking around. But yeah, I usually don't get people coming up and all that." - AP Sports
