PE: Punting Efficiency, the average values generated per punt based on the field position of the punt team and the field position at the conclusion of the play.
FSU Football finally had a decent punting game last season with senior Cason Beatty, but he was replaced by true freshman Logan Tyler.
Tyler averaged 40.31 yards per punt which is two yards more than Beatty in his freshman season. However, Beatty averaged 45 yards per punt last season, so there was an expected drop off.
The ‘Noles ranked No. 124 in the nation in Punting Efficiency.
Tyler has a big leg, but punts often lacked hang time which allowed opposing teams the opportunity to get good returns.
That’s why opponents averaged over 18 yards per return. Tyler is a very good athlete and I have no doubts he’ll improve next season and Beatty did for him.
However, let’s hope it doesn’t take him getting into his fourth year before he’s not a liability.
