Vikings punter Travis Dorsch was named to the All-NFL Europe team on Thursday.
Dorsch, who was allocated to the Rhein Fire by the Vikings, led NFL
Europe in punting with a 42.5-yard gross average, with a 34.9-yard net and a long punt of 60 yards. He punted 44 times for 1,870 yards with 11 punts inside the 20-yard line.
Dorsch originally signed with the Vikings on Aug. 3, 2004, and spent the opening
two weeks of the 2004 season on the practice squad. The team was hoping to use him for kickoffs, but he never found the consistency they were looking for there. The Vikings released him after two weeks and allocated him to NFL Europe this spring.
He entered the NFL when he was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of Purdue.
The All-NFL Europe team was selected by the NFLEL coaching staffs,
media, and by fans voting online.
