Idaho’s Austin Rehkow will hand both punting and kicking for the West Team in this year's East-West Shrine Game.

Rehkow rewrote the kicking and punting record books during his four-year career as an Idaho Vandal.  He was a first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection as a punter as a senior and a second-team choice as a kicker.

Rehkow also becomes the first player in school history to earn first-team honors for four seasons after starting his career as the punter of choice – and Special Teams Player of the Year, in the 2013 balloting of independent teams. He also is the first Vandal selected to play in the East-West Shrine game since Nate Enderle and Shiloh Keo played in 2010.
