Bennett Boehnlein

Redshirt Freshman


6’ 3” 200 lbs.

The countdown is down to 48 and today we spotlight the redshirt freshman Bennett Boehnlein. Boehnlein is a walk-on transfer from Western Kentucky that came under Brohm but decided to stay amidst the coaching change.

In high school he played for St. Xavier out of Louisville. He averaged just under 40 yards a punt and also started as tight end.

Jack Ansell will presumably remain in the starting punter role this year and Boehnlein will be competing with Brendan Cropsey for backup
