In the Longhorns 17-7 win over the Cyclones, Dickson proved to be a true field-flipper, averaging 46.9 yards per punt on seven attempts and send four punts more than 50 yards downfield. His longest effort against Iowa State was 61 yards.
Furthermore, Dickson downed four punts inside of Iowa State’s 20-yard line and allowed only one punt to be returned.
Through four games, Dickson currently headlines the Big 12 with an average of 45.7 yards per punt, while his net average of 42.6 yards per punt stands as the 11st-best effort in college football.
In 2016, Dickson became the first Longhorn ever to be honored as a Ray Guy Award finalist and although he didn’t secure the award, Dickson was named the 2016 Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year.
