Florida’s two kickers — punter Johnny Townsend and place-kicker Eddy Pineiro — performed like All-Americans throughout the 2017 season. Now, they officially have that status.
Townsend and Pineiro were named to the Associated Press All-America team Monday. Townsend is on the second team and Pineiro on the third.
Townsend averaged 47.5 yards per punt this season and consistently flipped field position for the Gators. Pineiro made 17 of 18 field goal attempts, including his final 16 in a row.
