Why should this nominee be considered for the Broyles Award?

UNT has had one of the strongest special teams units in FBS, highlighted by the best kickoff return defense in the country and the fourth-ranked punt return defense.• Led by Senior K Noah Rauschenberg, North Texas is giving up an average of just 9.75 yards per kickoff return, mostly due to the fact that Rauschenberg has a 90.0 touchback percentage this season, good for second in FBS.• In addition, the combination of P Sawyer Evans and P Adam Jacklin have allowed just zero total punt return yards on three attempts through nine games this season. The duo is averaging 41.59 net yards per punt, good for 19th in FBS.• As a returner, Kaylon Horton currently sits third in FBS and leads The American with 546 kickoff returns yards this season.
