At this point for Adam Korsak, they should simply start naming awards after him. The Rutgers football punter was named on Monday as the Big Ten Co-Special Teams Players of the Week.

Korsak had a tremendous Saturday for Rutgers at Illinois, with six punts for an average of 47 yards per punt. Most importantly, four of his punts were inside the 20-yard line, the field position switches helping to key Rutgers to a 20-14 win at Illinois.

He had punts land at the 4-yard line and the 1-yard line, cementing his reputation as the nation’s top placement punter.

The win was the first one in the Big Ten for Rutgers this season as the Scarlet Knights are now 4-4 (1-4 Big Ten) on the season. Korsak has punted 42 times this season and is averaging 47.5 yards per punt. His 47 yards per punt was the highest for any of his five Big Ten games this season.

It was the second time this season that Korsak was given the weekly award from the Big Ten. Three times this year, Korsak was named the Ray Guy Award Punter of the Week. The Ray Guy Award is given out annually to the nation’s top punter.
