Kevin Huber (born July 16, 1985) is an American football punter for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Cincinnati, and was twice recognized as a consensus All-American. He was considered one of the top punter prospects in his class, and was drafted in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Bengals.[1]

Early years[edit]

Huber was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. He attended Archbishop McNicholas High School in Cincinnati, and played for the McNicholas Rockets high school football team. He was a three-time all-conference selection and was named the Greater Catholic League's Punter of the Year following his junior and senior seasons.

College career[edit]

Huber attended the University of Cincinnati, where he played for the Cincinnati Bearcats football team from 2005 to 2008. As a junior in 2007, and again as a senior in 2008, he was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American.

Awards and honors[edit]

Professional career[edit]

The Cincinnati Bengals selected Huber in the fifth round (142nd overall pick) of the 2009 NFL Draft, and he has played for the Bengals since the 2009 season. In his six-year career, through game 6 of the 2014 season, Huber has played 84 games and averaged 44.3 yards on 418 punts.[9] He has also been the Bengals' placekicking holder for his entire career.[10]

In week 15 of 2013 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Huber was blocked by Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin, which led to a fractured jaw.[11] Afterwards, it was reported that Huber had also suffered a vertebrae fracture in his neck, and would miss the remainder of the season.[12]

Huber holds Bengals' franchise career marks for gross punting average (44.2 yards) and net average (39.1) through the 2013 season, as well as the season records in both categories (set in 2012).[13]
