Louisiana Ragin' Cajun punter Rhys Byrns has made the change from Australian Rules football to American football with ease.

Granted, he's punting. While it would be cool to play quarterback, Byrns admits he "can't throw the football".

Punting suits him fine, as he went to Pro Kick Australia Academy and earned himself a scholarship to UL.

The Aussie met with the media today, talking about being named Sun Belt Special Teams Player of the Week, what it's like playing in front of his family, transitioning to American football and more.
