CougarStats 2000s all-decade team: Special Teams

Last week’s voting for all-decade linebackers was a clear-cut choice for Aaron Francisco, Andrew Rich, Brian Logan and Jernaro Gilford. All of the other candidates only had single-digit vote counts.

This week, the final week of the survey, we have three polls, please vote in all of them. Kickers, punters and return specialists. Vote for whomever you like, but keep a few things in mind.

Kickers – Owen Pochman’s 2000 season should be the only one considered. 97-99 were in the previous decade.

Punters – Riley Stephenson’s 2009 season should be the only one considered for the same reason.

Return Specialists – Only vote based on Austin Collie’s kickoff and punt return abilities. Not his overall pass catching awesomeness.

The nominees are for 2000s all-decade team return specialists are O’Neil ChambersAustin CollieBryce Mahuika and Nathan Meikle.

So, the nominees are for 2000s all-decade team kickers are Jared McLaughlin, Matt Payne, Mitch Payne and Owen Pochman.

The nominees are for 2000s all-decade team punters are Aaron Edmonds, Derek McLaughlin, Matt Payne, CJ Santiago and Riley Stephenson.
