Lions punter named LSC Player of the Week

Lions Athletics

A&M-Commerce senior punter Cameron Frosch was named the Lone Star Conference Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday, marking the first weekly honor of Frosch's career.

Frosch proved to be vital to A&M-Commerce's 31-29 victory at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, punting six times for 289 yards, averaging 48.2 yards per kick with a long of 53 yards. Twice during the second half Frosch pinned the Savage Storm inside their own five-yard line, aiding the Lions in their first road victory since 2010.

A preseason third team All-American, Frosch currently ranks fourth in the LSC. He has had just one touchback this season while averaging 40.1 yards per punt with five punts landing inside the 20-yard line. Frosch has served as the Lions' primary punter for the last four seasons, punting the ball 238 times for 9,162 yards, an average of 38.5 yards per punt. He has 25 punts of 50 yards or more in his career, and just 17 touchbacks.

Frosch is just 170 yards away from surpassing Dan Roberson (1983-86) as the Lions' all-time leading punter, and gets his first chance at the record this Saturday night in Kingsville against the A&M-Kingsville Javelinas, who will host the Lions as they compete for the Chennault Cup. The Lions will be looking for their second-straight Chennault Cupt victory after defeating the Javelinas at Memorial Stadium 21-14 in overtime last season.

If you can't make it to Javelina Stadium for the game, you can still catch the game. A live video stream will be available on JavelinaAthletics.com, and Charlie Chitwood and Brock Calloway will have the call of the game on Your Station, 88.9 KETR!
