U-Albany’s Paul Layton has been named National Co-Punter of the Week, and was also recognized by the Northeast Conference as Special Teams Player of the Week.

A sophomore from Burnt Hills, Layton had one of the best punting games in U-Albany history as he averaged 54.3 yards in seven attempts during last Saturday’s 44-21 victory over Columbia. He had a career-high four punts of 50 or more yards.

His 70-yarder in the fourth quarter tied the seventh-longest in school history. His 63-yard kick on the opening possession of the second half was 1 of 4 punts that went for a touchback. He also placed three punts inside the 20, including a pair downed at the one- and three-yard lines.

Layton moved to second among the Division I FCS leaders with a 47.3 average on the season. He has 21 punts of 50-plus yards at the collegiate level.
