Dec. 18, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana punter Chris Hagerup has been recognized on three Freshman All-America Teams. Sporting News, Rivals.com and Phil Steele each selected the redshirt freshman as a second-teamer.
Hagerup, who was recognized as honorable mention All-Big Ten, wrapped up his first season handling the team's punting duties with a 42.4 average and shared the seventh-best single-season average in IU history. His average ranked third in the Big Ten, 22nd nationally and was the third best by a freshman in the country.
The Whitefish Bay, Wis., native boomed 13 of his 61 punts over 50 yards, including a Big Ten-long 67-yarder, and landed 14 inside the 20-yard line and five inside the 10. Hager up kicked at least one 50-yarder in nine of the team's 12 games and collected IU's special teams player of the week honors nine times.
