Growden, a grad transfer, will fill a major need for the Mountaineers.  Recently, Neal Brown was asked about his team’s situation at punter and his reply was interesting, saying, “Yeah, next question.”

Growden, orginally from Clare, South Australia, has been on the SEC Academic Honor Roll each year in Baton Rouge and was named to the All Freshman team back in 2016.  While at LSU, he has averaged 39.0 yards per punt, but may of those punts were short-range to pin opponents deep in their own territory.

In addition to serving as the punter for the Mountaineers, Growden will likely have an opportunity to win the role as the holder for the kicker.
