In more than 100 years, Toomey among the best at Saint John’s
Whenever that is.
The Saint John’s punter lived to play another day after the Johnnies scored on a 1-yard plunge on fourth down with no time remaining to seal a 32-31 win over Wisconsin-Platteville in the first-round of the NCAA D3 playoffs in Collegeville, Minnesota.
Toomey, of South High fame, was on point with a 44-yard punting average on five attempts, including three inside the 20-yard line.
His name is all over the record books.
The senior ranks No. 2 all-time with a 38.1-yard career average on 158 attempts.
He owns the third-highest [40.4, 2016] and seventh-highest [37.9, 2014] on the single-season list.
Toomey is also the king of hangtime, with 37 percent of his career punts being downed inside the 20.
The Johnnies [10-1] advanced to the second round and will face Wisconsin-Oshkosh next Saturday on the road.
