Baylor considering 285-pound DL to replace injured punter

Baylor considering 285-pound DL to replace injured punter

Baylor lost its star punter, Drew Galitz, with an ACL injury in the Bears' 32-20 loss against Kansas State and it might be surprising who the team is considering to fill that position.

Among the candidates: James Lynch, a 6-foot-4 defensive lineman who weighs 285 pounds. Apparently Lynch has some experience in this area from high school. He averaged 43 yards per punt on 27 punts as a senior at Round Rock High School, according to Max Preps.

Baylor also is considering Connor Martin, who took over during the Kansas State game after Galitz was injured, and Peter Webster, who is the Bears' primary backup punter. However, coach Matt Rhule wants Lynch to be prepared just in case his number is called to punt.

"We'll try to bring James along starting off in three or four games," Rhule said via The Dallas Morning News. "He was an all-state punter. He just hasn't done it, so I don't know that he'd be ready to get ready this week."


Baylor's next game is Saturday against Oklahoma State where Rhule will be forced to make a decision on a punter.
