Trojan verbal commit Tom Malone won the punting portion of the recent Inland Empire Kicking and Punting competition held at Colton HS with a performance that saw him average an amazing 56.3 yards per kick with an average hang time of 4.69 seconds.
"It was a good day, I had a lot of fun," said Malone. "They had us punt 10 balls each and I had a long of 69 yards and a 5.42 hang time and a short of 48 yards and 4.2 hang time. There was a high school section and a college section for the punters and I won the high school and the overall award. I also took part in the kicking competition and made 7 out of 10 field goals but didn't win. When we were messing around after the competition I hit two field goals from 60 yards though."
