Hatcher had 19 punts inside the 20 and just seven touchbacks. For his career he has 15 punts of 50 yards or more, including two punts of at least 76 yards. His 79 yard punt against North Texas last year was the second longest in school history.
An English Major who made the President’s List (4.0) last semester, Zimmerman was named to the Academic All-ACC team last year.
