Get To Know Your Orange Man - #46 Jonathan Fisher

Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE

Jonathan Fisher enters his junior season as a third year starter at punter.

Name: Jonathan Fisher

Position: Punter

Year: Junior

Height: 6'1"

Weight: 209

Hometown: Oakfield, NY

High School: Oakfield-Alabama Central

2012 Stats: 58 punts, 38.4 yard average, 58 yard long, 18 punts inside the 20.

2013 Projections: He's currently embroiled with his annual punter-duel with Riley Dixon for the starting job. I expect that Fisher will win it at the end of the day, but some of the reports I've read have good things to say about Dixon as well. PUNTER DRAMA! SYRACUSE FOOTBALL!

How'd He Get Here?: Fisher was the top punter in New York in high school, and caught the attention of Bob Casullo, who probably yelled a very enticing scholarship offer in his face.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Rivals and 247 both gave him two stars.

Money Quote:

"It’s pretty nerve-wracking when you see the guy coming full speed at you," Fisher said of being the last line of defense on returns. "As soon as he catches it, your mind changes (to) I have to defend now. I can’t let the guy get past me."

Links of Wonder: Lindsay Kramer on Fisher's mixed outing against Northwestern and return-man Venric Mark last season.

What Does Shafer Anselmo Think: From the same article, Anselmo describes the team's punting philosophy from last year. I'd like us to get distance AND hangtime this year, sirs.

"We’d like to see the ball higher, higher, higher," Anselmo emphasized. "That’s what we worked on this week. I look at it as, we’d really like a little less distance and more hang time."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: He set his high school's long punt record by booming a 73 yarder.
