Warren Area High School graduate Colter Johnson will punt for Division I UMass at The Big House on Saturday as the Minutemen face the Michigan Wolverines at 3:30 p.m. (Big Ten Network) in Ann Arbor, Mich.
From Alfred State, Johnson handled the punting duties against Indiana last week, turning in a 44.1-yard average and three punts over 50 yards.
The 2012 season represents a new era in UMass football as the Minutemen (0-2) transition from a storied past at the Football Championship Subdivision to the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Mid-American Conference (MAC). It is Johnson's first season in Division I with UMass and he won the starting punter job. In two games, he has 11 punts for 481 yards (43.7) and a long of 55 yards.
As a Dragon, Johnson was on all-region all-star teams from his sophomore year on, finishing as a Region 5 first-team selection on offense, defense and special teams as a senior. He was a tight end, defensive lineman, punter and kicker. He is tied for a WAHS school record with a 47-yard field goal in 2008.
