PUNTER EARNS COLLEGE FOOTBALL PERFORMANCE AWARDS HONOR
October 1, 2012
MARTIN, Tenn. Sophomore James Satterfield was named the Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week by College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) for his effort this past Saturday in The University of Tennessee at Martin’s OVC showdown with Eastern Kentucky at Hardy M. Graham Stadium.
The UT Martin punter averaged 44 yards per punt against the Colonels. He punted six times in the game, and his longest was a 70-yarder. He also had two punts inside the 20 yard line and one touchback.
Satterfield’s 70-yard punt is the longest in school history since 2008 when Adam Ivey had a 58-yard punt.
Satterfield is averaging 40.2 yards per punt this season for the Skyhawks.
The goal of College Football Performance Awards is to provide the most scientifically rigorous conferment in college football. Recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams.
