ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – He’s a bright spot on a losing team. Lobo punter Tyson Dyer continues to shine on the football field, using his talent to pin opponents deep into their own territory.
Through eight games, Dyer has punted 39 times for 1,785 yards. He averaged 46 yards per punt and is among the top ten in the nation.
“Because I’ve only played two whole seasons in my whole life, I think my preparation has really stepped up a notch from last year,” said Dyer. “I really focus on my technique as much as I can. I think all the hard work I do off the field is starting to pay off on the field.”
