Bethany Swedes Kicker, Punter & Snapper News


September 17, 2014 - punter Brett Crome sets records
"Crome will have his name etched in not only the Swedes’ football record book, but also the KCAC record book for his performance Saturday at Graceland University....  Crome punted six times and averaged 52.5 yards per punt. Previously, the KCAC record was held by John McAnianch from Ottawa University in 1960. There have been a number of attempts that have come close to the record, but none before Crome had bested McAnianch's 83-yard punt. Derik Martinez (Tabor College) and Troy VanBlarcom (Kansas Wesleyan University) each kicked an 80-yard punt. Travis Eason of McPherson College kicked a 78-yard punt, while Paul Rotering also of McPherson, kicked a 77-yard punt. The remaining top 10 longest punts have all been since 2005, other than the previous record of McAninch. 'I would have never thought that I would break a school record, and definitely not a conference record, Crome said. 'It is a real honor to have accomplished this feat and it is something I will always remember'." - Mid Kansas Online 

August 5, 2014 - punter Jake Huff
"Jake Huff is heading off to college, following his dream to be the punter on his college football team. The thing is - he taught himself to punt. Huff worked really hard at it and is good enough to get a scholarship, even though he never punted in high school....  'I went to a national top prospect competition in Nashville Tennessee,' he said. Armed with the video from that, the statistics he'd compiled and his dream to be a college football punter, he began sending emails and videos to area colleges. Several showed interested, and he finally has a scholarship at Bethany College in Kansas. 'It's a half scholarship, and they said it could easily go up - so I expect it to go up,' said Jake Huff, who taught himself to punt." - News On 6
