Airport Punter Hopes His Path Leads To The NFL

Airport punter Paxton Brooks has a booming leg that drew the attention of the Tennessee Volunteers.

Paxton Brook's grade point average and national ranking are off the charts.

The former News19 Player of the Week will take a 5.6 grade point average with him to Knoxville along with the notoriety of being ranking in the top 10 of the recruiting rankings as a punter.

Paxton took part in the early signing period by putting his name down for Tennessee, the school he had committed to before the coaching change. He says he has met new Volunteer head coach Jeremy Pruitt and likes what the new coach brings to the table.
