Don’t Kick It To Hester!

Posted by Kevin on December 3, 2007

Returning so many kickoffs/punt returns for touchdowns in college was one thing, but Devin Hester has been lighting up the pros as well. In less than two complete seasons, Hester has already returned four kickoffs and six punts for touchdowns. While that number may not sound like a lot, that’s 10 special teams touchdowns in just 28 games played.

Hester was just one punt return touchdown shy in 2006 of tying a 54 year old NFL mark for the most in a rookie season. His six punt returns fo a touchdown in his two seasons already rank him 4th all-time.

Hester does hold the #1 slot all-time for combined kickoff and punt returns for touchdowns at five in his rookie season. He’s matched that in his second season with more games to come.

If he stays healthy, Hester should completely rewrite the NFL record books for punt and kickoff returns. Again, he’s just 28 games into his career and he’s already established himself as one of the greatest return men of all time.
