42 Days To Purdue Football: Cody Webster

I am a big fan of our next player because his mom is the bringer of Yuengling for the site. After last season's Minnesota game, Cody's mom thanked me for what I do by bringing a case of Yuengling all the way from her native Pennsylvania. I also got to meet Cody after the game and thank him for contributing so well as a freshman.

Cody Webster - So.

Hometown: Harrisburg, PA (Central Dauphin East HS)


6'2", 190 pounds

2011 Projection: Starter at Punter

Last season was an excellent one for Webster as a true freshman. he averaged better than 43 yards per punt on 47 attempts and dropped 12 inside the 20. I am sure he would have had more, but with the offensive struggles we had I don't think he can punt from our own 20 that far. 17 of his punts were better than 50 yards and he had an astounding long of 79 (so maybe he can punt that far).

This season he has the added responsibility of being the holder on field goals and extra points, something he did just fine on Carson Wiggs' 67-yard field goal at the spring game. Both he and Wiggs are solid specialists, so now we need to get the return game down and solidify our retarded blocking scheme on punts.

Webster was named to the first team All-Conference for all four years he was in high school. Webster was forced to both punt and play defensive back, quarterback, and wide receiver. Since I am always thinking about trick plays I like that he was athletic enough to be a receiver.It will also be handy when Gibboney's blocking scheme has its inevitable breakdown and he has to run for his life.
