Ohio State Buckeye punter Cameron Johnston has been named the Big Ten Conference’s special team’s player of the week for his effort’s in the No. 1-ranked Buckeyes’ 38-12 victory over Western Michigan.
It is the second time that Johnston has been named the Big Ten special team’s player of the week, the last time was also against Western Michigan in 2013 when Johnson was a freshman.
Johnston was also named to the watch list for the Ray Guy award in the pre-season but Johnston faces some solid competition for the Ray Guy award from many other Australians including defending Ray Guy award winner Tom Hackett.
