Irish born University of Colorado punter Darragh O’Neill, who we previously featured on NFL-Ireland.com, still has his sights set on entering the NFL.
The Denver Post ran a feature on O’Neill, who was born in Cork and moved to American when he was three years old. While the 1-9 Buffalo’s have the 114th ranked offense in the nation, O’Neill is currently 18th in the nation with an average of 43 yards per punt.
O’Neill is on course to break two school records this season, one for most punts inside the opponent’s 20-yard line and the second punts inside the 10-yard line. O’Neill has also been on the shortlist for the Ray Guy Award and the College Football Performance Awards Punter of the Year
