On Tuesday night, the NFL announced the rosters for the 2018 Pro Bowl. The lone Beaver in that group was Los Angeles Rams punter Johnny Hekker.

Hekker played at OSU from 2008-2011. In that time, he punted 221 times and averaged 41.3 yards per punt.

This season with the Rams, he has punted 54 times and averaged 47.6 yards per punt. He was also voted to the Pro Bowl in 2016, 2015, and 2013.

With four selections now under his belt, Hekker now has the second most NFL Pro Bowl nods of any former Beaver. Chad Johnson got 5 in his time with the Bengals (2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, and 2009). Paul Lowe also got three in his time with the Chargers in the early 1960s after going to two AFL Pro Bowls prior to the merger.
