WVU Punter Oliver Straw Named Big 12 Co-Special Teams Player of the Week



Oliver Straw did it again, and this time he can enjoy it after a win. The West Virginia punter was named the Big 12 Co-Special Teams Player of the Week.

Straw won the award outright three weeks ago, but that was due to his performance in a game no one else played well for WVU and the Mountaineers lost 48-10 to Texas Tech. This time, however, Straw claims the honor again following the program’s first win over Oklahoma since joining the Big 12 a decade ago.

Against the Sooners, Straw punted six times for an average of 43.8 yards per punt. His longest punt of the day was boomed fir 51 yards.

Being recognized twice by the conference in his debut season at WVU shows just how impressive his individual season has been.
