Before he became a media mogul, and even before he came an All-Pro NFL punter, Pat McAfee was a star kicker at WVU. He’s now being recognized for his success in college that led to his professional career.

The Senior Bowl has named McAfee to its 75th Anniversary Team. McAfee is on the team as a punter. During McAfee’s time as a Mountaineer, he was one of the most accomplished kickers in college football and a member of winning teams that won multiple major bowl games.

After playing soccer in high school, McAfee served as both a kicker and punter from his sophomore season on. As a junior, he was awarded the Scott Shirley Special Teams Player of the Year Award and earned a second-team All Big East honor. As a senior, he was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award, which is given to the nation’s best punter.

Once his college career was over, McAfee was selected in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts as a punter. McAfee was named to the 2009 All-Rookie team and played in a Super Bowl. He played with the Colts for eight seasons, earning two Pro Bowl selections and one first-team All-Pro selection.

Since retiring from the NFL, McAfee has been a wildly successful media entrepreneur and hosts a daily show on ESPN.
