Only Jeremy Boone Until Penn State Football

He had two arms and two legs. Trust me. - Mike Pettigano

PUNTERS

For those who need reminding, Jeremy Boone punted the football for two of the better Penn State teams of the 2000s. He was all-conference in 2007, heading up the special teams for the 8-4 Alamo Bowl champions. PUNTING STATISTICS: Boone set the school record for punting average in a single game, averaging 51.4 yards per punt in that Alamo Bowl against Texas A&M. He would've been top-20 nationally in punting in 2008, averaging 43.0 yards per punt, if only his offense wasn't so damn good (only 39 attempts, not enough to qualify for national ranking).

As fantastic as he was in the Blue and White, his lasting impact as a Penn Stater extends far beyond the football field. Boone graduated with a degree in elementary and kindergarten education in 2009, sporting a 3.56 GPA, and took part in numerous philanthropic endeavors, including THON's Make-a-Wish program, Habitat for Humanity and the PA Special Olympics. A two-time all-Big Ten academic honoree, Boone represented everything right with Penn State during his time in Happy Valley and you'd bet he's passing those same values down to his students today.
