Today Building the Dam is starting it’s countdown of 30 of the most important players on next season’s football roster. Training Camp is only a few weeks away, and we’re not that far off from the start of the season in September. After last year’s successes, there’s a lot to look forward to this season. Today we’re getting started by looking at one of the team’s most important special teams players, punter Luke Loecher.

#30 - Luke Loecher

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: OCT 06 Washington State at Oregon State

Key Stats

  • 31 Punts
  • 47.06 Average Yards per Punt
  • 13 Punts Inside the 20 Yard Line
  • 10 Punts of 50+ Yards
  • 2 Touchbacks

Loecher had an amazing 2022 season. His 47.06 yard punt average would have ranked him in the top 10 nationwide, but he did not punt enough to crack the NCAA’s list. Oregon State as a team just didn’t produce enough punting situations to show off Loecher’s skills, but it’s nice to know that if the Beavers need him, he can deliver both power and accuracy. If Loecher gets more opportunities this season, he could be a potential All Pac-12, or even All-American, candidate.

That’s all for today. Check back tomorrow when we take our first look at Oregon State’s defense.
