Husker Camp Countdown: No. 48 Isaac Armstrong

Isaac Armstrong averaged 43.6 yards per punt — ninth-highest in Husker history — and pinned the opponent inside its own 20 nine times. He can be a weapon for the Huskers this fall.

The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2019 season.

Isaac Armstrong

5-11, 205 • Senior • P

This left-footer should have been the punter for multiple seasons, frankly, but it took multiple shanks and miscues by Caleb Lightbourn, who has since transferred to Oregon State, for Armstrong to finally punch through to the starting role. He averaged 43.6 yards per punt — ninth-highest in Husker history — and pinned the opponent inside its own 20 nine times. He can be a weapon for the Huskers this fall.

Armstrong will likely have competition from Michigan State transfer William Przystup, but he has the advantage of having played with this team for four seasons and that left foot. It can be hard to track the punt of a left-footer. Spins differently.
