Jets | Graham Adds Unique Spin on Punts

Mon, 05 Sep 2005 07:15:51 -0700

Randy Lange, of the Bergen Record, reports New York Jets P Ben Graham has a few unique methods of punting that provide various spins on the ball, making it more difficult for opposing returners to field the ball. Graham, a 31-year old from Australia, had three of his 18 punts muffed during the exhibition season this summer. "If we're backed up," Graham said, "I'll kick what we call [in Australia] a torpedo or spiral. Here they call it a punt." Graham's unique style and control on end-over-end punts can potentially have a significant role for the Jets' special teams coverage units this year. "Because punt returners here aren't used to catching a ball that drops from the sky like that," Graham said, "they might find it a little difficult."

Jets | Two Punters Dueling for One Job

Mon, 22 Aug 2005 22:10:07 -0700

Tom Rock, of Newsday, reports New York Jets Ps Micah Knorr and Ben Graham continue to battle for the team's punting job with no clear cut frontrunner emerging so far. Up to this point in the preseason, the opportunities have been split about evenly. The two get the same amount of reps during practices, and in the two preseason games Graham has kicked eight of the 13 punts. Both are left-footed, which presents problems for returners due to abnormal spins, but Graham has befuddled receivers with his end-over-enders and wobbly spirals. "You're looking at two somewhat different people," Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff said of the veteran Knorr and rookie Graham, a convert from Australian League Football. "I wouldn't say one has a leg up. I think it's been a good competition."

Jets | Graham Adjusting to NFL Football

Thu, 23 Jun 2005 18:56:41 -0700

NewYorkJets.com reports New York Jets rookie P Ben Graham has been interested in trying to make it to the NFL since 1997, when he was midway through his Australian Rules Football career. "Since 1997 I have shown a keen interest in the NFL and in the offseason I got used to the different balls, learned the rules, and watched as many games as I could," Graham, 31, said. "I even came over to the states and went to games, so it's been an eight year process." Graham added the biggest adjustment to the NFL game has been the fact that he doesn't have to so much on the field. "In Australian rules football every player has to do everything," he said. "They have to run, they have to mark and they have to tackle. Here it is so specific."

Sat, 04 Jun 2005 11:32:29 -0700

New York Jets P Ben Graham wrote in his diary at The Age he is starting to feel comfortable with New York and his teammates. Graham is trying to make the transition from the Australian Rules Football League to the NFL. He said the team's May minicamp was a bit more intense than he originally thought it would be, but it was a crucial stage in his development. He said several NFL clubs have already inquired about other Australians trying out in numerous positions. Graham has learned to be a holder for PK Mike Nugent. Graham learned this week he's still with the team as June begins and training camp draws near.
