The College Football Season is getting closer. With 24 days left until BYU football kickoffs against South Florida let’s get to know some players on the roster for this upcoming season. This will give fans an idea of where these players have come from and what they could do for the cougars this season. I will do one every day there is a player with that number.
Today is Ryan Rehkow sophomore punter 6-6 232 lbs. Before coming to BYU he went to high school in Washington. Also recruited by Stanford, Washington, Washington St, Oklahoma St, Colorado St, Nevada, and Idaho. Served his two-year mission in the United Kingdom. Started as a freshman in 2020 for BYU and had 28 punts for 1,264 yards. 57% of his punts went inside the 20-yard line. Career long of 61 yards against Houston. In 2021 played in all 13 games. 40 punts for 1,943 yards. Named to pro football network independent punter of the year. Ray Guy Award Watchlist and awardee of Oct. 4th. Had an 83-yard punt against Arizona State this past season.
His older brother also played punter and kicker for Idaho. BYU offered Rehkow a scholarship to try and make sure he didn’t go anywhere else.
On fulfilling a childhood dream “We went to games all the time, and I’m just so grateful to kind of fulfill a childhood dream,” BYU’s Rehkow. “I’ve been aware of it for a while now. I knew about it last year. Even before my mission, like looking at the schedule, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’ll be able to come back home to Washington and play in front of family and friends and stuff.’
